Hi there, I'm Adani!

I’m currently a master’s student in Psychology and Learning Sciences at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU Munich).

I’m interested in how children come to understand and obtain knowledge about the world, and what role curiosity, inquiry, and exploration play in these processes.

Relatedly, I’m also passionate about developing tools that encourage curiosity, inquiry, and exploration in formal and informal learning environments, especially to foster children’s scientific literacy and reasoning. What are ways to design and use learning technologies to provide young students with effective, engaging, and personalized learning experiences?

In my free time, I sometimes blog and dabble in small webdesign / data viz / miscellaneous coding projects. I always enjoy exchanging ideas with others, so please don’t hesitate to reach out!
