Jeremi London earned the “Overall Best Paper Award” at the 2015 Australasian Association for Engineering Education (AAEE) Conference in Torquay, Australia.
The paper was presented as part of her dissertation work and serves as background information for her current stream of research projects focused on what it means for federally-funded STEM education research and development projects to make an “impact”. The title of the paper she presented is “The Beginning of a Scholarly Conversation on Impact in Engineering Education: Summarizing the Three Difficulties with Studying Research Impact.”
The annual AAEE Conference is one of the largest gatherings of engineering educators in Australasia, bringing together delegates to discuss engineering education research and best practice.
London joined the faculty of the Polytechnic School as an assistant professor starting in the Fall 2015 semester. She previously held a postdoctoral research associate position at ASU. She holds a doctorate in engineering education, a master’s in industrial engineering and a bachelor’s in industrial engineering all from Purdue University.
Throughout graduate school, she worked in the National Science Foundation’s Division of Undergraduate Education on research and evaluation projects related to the role of cyberlearning technology in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Prior to her graduate studies, London worked at Anheuser-Busch and GE Healthcare in traditional industrial engineering roles to ensure consistent quality across products, continuous process improvement and compliance with federal regulations on food and medical devices, respectively.
She currently employs mixed methods research designs and computational tools to address complex problems relevant to her research interests. Her research includes science policy issues surrounding STEM learning in cyberlearning environments; accountability, transparency and impact of federal investments in STEM education research and development; and applications of simulation and modeling tools to address undergraduate engineering education research problems.
