Dr. Karabiyik is a postdoctoral researcher working at Purdue Polytechnic Institute, Purdue University. She holds an M.S and PhD degree both from Florida State University. Her research interests include data-driven decision making through data visualizations, game theoretic modeling and engineering design thinking.
Alejandra Magana is a Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Technology and an affiliated faculty at the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. She holds a B.E. in Information Systems, a M.S. in Technology, both from Tec de Monterrey; and a M.S. in Educational Technology and a Ph.D. in Engineering Education from Purdue University. Her research is focused on identifying how model-based cognition in STEM can be better supported by means of expert technological and computing tools such as cyber-physical systems,visualizations and modeling and simulation tools.
Paul Parsons is an Assistant Professor in the Polytechnic Institute at Purdue University. His research focuses on human-centered design, visualization, and cognitive psychology. He studies how people understand and reason with visualizations, and how interacting with visualizations influences learning and thinking processes.
Ying Ying Seah is a Ph.D. candidate in Technology in the Department of Computer Information Technology at Purdue University. Her research interest mainly focuses on developing and validating novel curricular approaches and technology-enhanced learning environments in STEM education, integrating scientific and engineering thinking in the relevant disciplines. Specifically, her current project focuses on designing, implementing, and validating a Learning by Design curricular approach in science classrooms across education levels. Combined with a CAD design task, as well as argumentation scaffold, her research project aims to help students develop better argumentation skills as well as informed design decision-making skills. She has implemented this project in two middle schools in the Indiana's Tippecanoe county, a Physics course for pre-service teachers at Purdue University, and summer camps for Engineering Minority Program at Purdue University.
