Dr. Roxanne Moore started as a Research Engineer in the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering in 2014. Prior to that, she served as a postdoctoral fellow with the Center for Education Integrating Mathematics, Science, and Computing (CEISMC) at Georgia Tech, where she has continued her collaborations. Her PhD research focused on systems engineering, design, and optimization. Since then, she's shifted her focus to inspiring the next generation of engineers and improving diversity. She has written engineering curriculum for middle and high school students, trained teachers, and worked on research initiatives related to that curriculum through the NSF AMP-IT-UP grant. She is also working on new assessment instruments for measuring student learning of the engineering design process. In addition, she is applying modeling and systems engineering techniques to K-12 school settings to understand why some interventions are sustained and some are not.
