Advisee wins NSF Graduate Research Award

Updated: Mar 20, 2019

I am happy to announce that on March 29th, my first year graduate advisee at Penn State, Will Ashley, was awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research fellowship. The program is highly competitive (less than 11% of applicants are awarded) and will guarantee him tuition funding and a generous stipend for 3 years so he can complete his studies. I am very proud of Will Ashley. He applied for the fellowship based on research projects I lead, which focus on gaming, learning and pathways in STEM. We are looking specifically at a phenomenon known as “stereotype threat," as well as examining how learning occurs in e-sports, particularly via livestreaming (such as on Twitch.tv) and in collegiate teams.
