Richard Davis

Position:
PhD Student
Institution:
Stanford University Graduate School of Education
Responsibilities:
Research, Facilitation
Description:

Richard Lee Davis is currently pursuing a PhD in Learning Science and Technology Design and a Masters in computer science.

Richard’s research explores the potential ways that computer science can change education. His research treats computer science as a multi-faceted medium: one that allows learners to creatively explore concepts in STEM, acts as a window into cognition, and as an aesthetic medium worthy of study in its own right.

Richard is actively developing new technologies for learners in STEM, having worked on click-and-drag interfaces for programming robotics, software linking haptic feedback to mathematics, and user-programmable physics simulations. He is also exploring novel computational methods for capturing and processing data during learning.

Before coming to Stanford, Richard worked as a software and firmware engineer in Philadelphia. He holds degrees from the University of Virginia in philosophy, sculpture, and physics. He also co-founded the Philadelphia Institute for Advanced Study.
