PAWS Alumna, PhD (2012), Assistant Professor at Arizona State University
Dr. Sharon Hsiao’s (http://www.public.asu.edu/~ihsiao1/) began her appointment as tenure-track Assistant Professor in the School of Computing, Informatics & Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University in August 2014. Most recently, Sharon has worked in EdLab in Teachers College at Columbia University as a post-doctoral innovation fellow. She is also affiliated with the Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences (QMSS) program at Columbia as an adjunct Assistant Professor, where she teaches a course (Data Visualization) and supervises several graduate research projects.
Her interests in computational technologies for learning, open social student modeling and computer science education originate from her formative years at the iSchool at Pitt, where she worked with Dr. Peter Brusilovsky in the Personalized Adaptive Web Systems (PAWS) group. Under Dr. Brusilovsky’s guidance, Hsiao had “an amazing experience” working in the PAWS lab and most enjoyed working “collaboratively and independently” with other students to “produce high quality publications yearly, exchange ideas, share passions and support each other every day.”
