    Ibrahim Oluwajoba Adisa

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education

    BioIbrahim ('Joba) Adisa is an AI Education Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University's Human-Centered AI Institute and works with Dr. Victor Lee on the CRAFT AI project at the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. His research lies at the intersection of learning sciences, computing education, data science, and AI literacy. He focuses on creating pedagogical tools and curriculum resources that enhance data literacy and promote creativity, computational thinking skills, and collaborative problem-solving with AI in K-12 education. His research is most often done through co-designs and partnerships in both formal and informal learning environments (such as YMCAs or Family homes) and involves using both qualitative and statistical machine learning methods to model and analyze learners' interactions with people, content, and digital tools in these environments.

    'Joba completed his undergraduate studies at the Federal University of Technology Minna with an emphasis on cognitive science, physics, and mathematics. He earned a master's in educational technology from the University of Ibadan. He obtained his doctorate in Learning Sciences from Clemson University, where he supported several NSF-funded projects in STEM, data science, and AI education. Before graduate school, he worked as a Digital Learning Specialist at Tek Experts, a global digital tech talent corporation. His diverse academic background underpins his innovative approach to educational research and instructional design.

    'Joba has received numerous awards and honors throughout his academic career, including the Outstanding Graduate Researcher Award and fellowships from MTN Foundation, Caroline Odunola Foundation, and Clemson University. His publications span various high-impact journals and conferences, contributing to the fields of AI literacy, data science education, and computing education.

  • Jared Furuta

    Jared Furuta

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education

    BioJared Furuta is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford's Center for Philanthropy and Civil Society, where his research focuses on how educational institutions are culturally constructed in response to changing social norms, conceptions, and taken-for-granted assumptions about education. His past research has examined global changes in national high stakes exams, school tracking, national assessments, and U.S. college admissions policies, and his work has appeared in Sociology of Education, Social Forces, and Comparative Education Review. His current work focuses on long-term changes in systemic educational reform, as well as the effects of educational institutions on economic, political, and social outcomes at the national level.

  • Andrea Christine Geissinger

    Andrea Christine Geissinger

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education

    BioAndrea Geissinger is a SCANCOR (Scandinavian Consortium for Organizational Research) Postdoctoral Scholar. Her research interest lies at the intersection between digital innovation, organizational sociology, and sociological institutionalism. She is motivated to understand the impact of digital technology on social and cultural norms and values through qualitative and archival methods. For instance, by drawing on institutional theories, she has explored one of the most promising alternative forms of organization of the past decade: the sharing economy. As digital platforms set new norms by drawing on elements of both market and community on a large scale, Andrea’s current research focuses on deepening our understanding of what this “community” means in, for, and around organizations and society.

    Andrea is also a Research Fellow at the House of Innovation at the Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden. She holds a Ph.D. in Business Administration from Örebro University School of Business, M.Sc. from Stockholm Business School, and a B.A. from Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany. Prior to her research career, Andrea worked in management consulting.

  • Gage Silva Gorsky

    Gage Silva Gorsky

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education

    BioGage Gorsky is a queer mixed Mexican Jewish multimodal research advisor, data analyst, and program evaluator who uses a range of methodologies to explore intersections of identity and the phenomenon of social categorization, with a focus on the liminal and marginal embodied experiences of real people. They have a doctorate in Educational Measurement and Statistics from the University of Washington, where their dissertation examined persistent gender stereotypes embedded into the linguistic features of middle school math word problems. Gage’s inquiry bridges social science themes, with expertise and experience doing research spanning disciplines- education, history, statistics, feminist and queer theories, psychology, and identity development.

    Past projects have covered dynamic subject matter, including a genealogical and historical study of the Mormon migration to California during the mid-19th century, a statistical exploration of factors influencing healthcare utilization among transgender adults in the United States, and HR- and disability justice-focused survey research on workplace inclusion practices within a markedly mixed-ability workforce.

    Their recent work explores the dynamic expression of intersectional Jewish identity, including collaborations with the Jews of Color Initiative, where they helped lead “Beyond the Count,” the largest ever study of Jews of Color released August 2021. In addition to ongoing work with the Jim Joseph Foundation, SVARA, Nazun, and Jewish organizations across the United States, they serve as an advisor for OneTable, the Collaborative for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE), Edot Midwest, as well as a number of additional independent research projects.

  • Hsiaolin Hsieh

    Hsiaolin Hsieh

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education
    Other Tech - Graduate, GSE Dean's Office
    SU Summer Student, Silverman Program

    BioHsiaolin Hsieh is a doctoral candidate at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. Her research is relevant to equity and fairness in education, especially for students classified as English learners (ELs). Formally trained in educational measurement and assessment, Ms. Hsieh has ample experience in the design, implementation, evaluation, and interpretation of tests in the K-12 context, and in large-scale data collection and analysis for projects examining upper elementary students’ literacy and reading comprehension. Her research draws on both qualitative approaches (e.g., interviews, think-aloud protocols, collaborative coding, classroom observations) and quantitative techniques (e.g., statistical modeling, and machine learning algorithms). Working in researcher-practitioner partnerships, she has examined students’ course pathways and classroom heterogeneity patterns in middle and high school and supported schools in improving their assessment, reclassification, and course designation practices to provide ELs with increased access to mathematics courses. Her work in multilingual classrooms is useful in examining how educational technology can be leveraged to assist student learning. Applying natural language processing and computational linguistics methods, she has analyzed complex student dialogic participation in the classrooms. Her findings speak to the importance of using student-student conversations in the classroom context to inform English proficiency classification decisions. She is the developer of LogoSearch, an online repository created to collect, archive, and evaluate student conversations, and the creator of visualizations intended to support educators in identifying effective ways of providing ELs with more equitable learning opportunities.
