My research focuses on understanding and supporting the interplay between curriculum development and teacher professional development, and often emphasizes the supportive role of technology in these processes. I am committed to exploring how educational research can serve the development of scientific understanding while also developing sustainable solutions to real problems in educational practice. Since educational design research lends itself to these dual aims, I also work on developing and explicating ways to conduct design research. 

In addition to authoring numerous articles, I co-edited the book, Educational Design Research and, together with Tom Reeves, wrote the book, Conducting Educational Design Research. I currently serve as executive chair of the International Society for Design and Development in Education
