    BioDarion A. Wallace, from Inglewood, CA, is a Ph.D. student in the Graduate School of Education in the Race, Inequality, and Language in Education, History of Education, and Sociology of Education programs. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Rhetoric and African American Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master’s degree in International Education Policy Analysis from Stanford University. As a Black Education Studies scholar, Darion’s research draws upon Black Studies, Sociology, and History, while employing mixed methods, to interrogate the ways K-12 American schools cohere logics of (anti)blackness and structure the life and educational outcomes of Black students across temporal and spatial bounds. Moreover, he is interested in how abolitionist praxes, pedagogies, and epistemologies rooted in the Black radical and intellectual tradition have and continue to serve a liberatory function in the project of Black education. To this aim, Darion is interested in partnering with public schools and libraries to develop secondary students’ historical literacies and archival skills to help them better understand the localized sociopolitical context that undergirds their lived experience. Previously, he has worked with the Learning Policy Institute as a Research and Policy Associate, the Service Employees International Union as an Organizer, and San Francisco State University as an Africana Studies Lecturer on Black Masculinities and Black Social Science.

    BioMy research is situated at the intersection of machine learning and human cognition. In my work, I apply learning analytics and data mining techniques to students’ interaction data in technology-based learning environments. The goal is to translate fine-grained behavioral data into meaningful evidence about students’ cognitive and metacognitive processes. These enhanced understandings of students’ mental processes and competencies are then used to guide the design of and evaluate instructional materials embedded in educational technology.

    professor of comparative politics and elected the first Rektor (president) of Viadrina
    European University at Frankfurt (Oder), a position from which he retired in the fall
    of 1999. He chaired the Commission on Higher Education of the State of Saxony
    (1999-2002) and was instrumental in the founding and development of the Hertie
    School of Governance in Berlin from 2002 to 2009. He has served in a variety of

    1999 and 2014. From 2014 to 2017, he served as Stanford’s Academic Secretary to

    (Bundesverdienstkreuz I. Kl.), and of the State of Brandenburg, as well as an
    honorary doctorate by Viadrina University, and honorary citizenship by the city of
    Frankfurt (Oder). His publications deal with the politics of educational change, the
    international politics of knowledge production, and the dynamics of reform and nonreform
    in higher education.
