Jessica Roberts is an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing. She holds a PhD in Learning Sciences from the University of Illinois-Chicago with a concentration in geospatial analysis and visualization and a B.S. from Northwestern University with a concentration in theatre design. Her research examines how people learn through, with, and about data in out-of-school environments such as museums and citizen science activities and how interactive technologies mediate social, informal learning experiences. Her work on the design of interactive learning technologies has been exhibited at venues including the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and the New York Hall of Science.
