My name is Rosh Dhanawade. Currently, I am a PhD student at Indiana University's Learning Sciences Program. I just completed my B.A. in Computer Science and Anthropology with a Minor in Business from the University of Delaware. On July 11th, 2009 I will be married to the most wonderful woman in the world , Amber Wagner. She will then be joining me in Bloomington, and taking up a position as an elementary school teacher. My research interests include Mathematics education, online persistence, the use of social media in the classroom, and using online environments to support learning. Being new to the field of education, I know that there is much that I need to learn and many concepts that I must grasp, but with the support and instruction of classes, faculty, and peers I know that I have the resources I need for success!
