Megan Bardolph

Graduate Student Researcher

As a cognitive scientist and graduate student researcher, Megan Bardolph’s goal is to promote communication between instructors and students. She seeks to enhance her own classroom with active learning techniques and tools to facilitate inclusive participation; and to provide instructors with research-based methods to engage with their students. She has served as an Instructor of Record in the Cognitive Science department and as a Teaching Assistant for over ten different courses. Megan’s individual research and her research for the CET both attempt to understand “what happens in the mind” of students and others who constantly update their knowledge of the world. Megan earned her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and worked as an engineer before leaving industry for academia. She enjoys the opportunity to mentor students in her classes and in her research lab. She is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego.
