About your hosts

Jeremy McLaughlin

Jeremy is a PhD student at Old Dominion University where he researches instructional design and how teachers, both formal and informal, engage in questioning their students. Jeremy has worked in secondary education as a science teacher for most of the last decade, and as a mechatronics engineer before that. An avid tinkerer, Jeremy will happily spend twice as much time writing a program to do some thing rather than just do the thing and be done. His research nuggets are bone-in, and covered in parmesan garlic.
