Research Scientist Level 1
Institute of Cognitive Science • NSF National AI Institute for Student-AI Teaming (iSat)

Thomas is an Institute-wide Research Associate who leverages his interdisciplinary background to support research conducted in each Strand and to conduct internal research studies that facilitate better cross-strand collaborations. In addition to investigating how the integration of Artificial Intelligence in the classroom affects the user experience, Thomas studies how iSAT’s in-house AI Partner may also meaningfully support collaborations beyond the classroom.

Before joining iSAT, Thomas was a postdoctoral researcher in Gloria Mark’s Social Sensing Lab at the University of California (Irvine) where he ran an unmoderated, remote study of work-from-home teams during the COVID-19 pandemic. He holds PhDs in English and Cultural Studies with a focus on Rhetoric and Digital Media from Georgia State University and Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (Germany).
