PhD Human Computer Interaction, Iowa State University, 2010

Dr. Jordan is passionate about teaching and is keen in making students active participants in the classroom.  She has taught basic programming, information systems, data communications, human computer interaction, and web development courses among others.  Her own research drives her interest in projects dealing with brain-computer interface, the technology gap, social media, and computational thinking in education.  She was part of the first student group from Iowa State University to present in the international design competition at CHI’08 where they obtained fourth place with a system for survivors of domestic violence, GuardDV.  In 2003, she was selected as a Fellow by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.  As a result, she had the enriching experience of working in Congress and at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.  Thanks to her involvement in the Department of Education’s Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program at Iowa State, she supports undergraduate research as a way for students to join a community of practice.  She has also successfully collaborated in grant proposals driven to fund undergraduate research programs and to learn about the effect of simulations in teaching computer security courses.
