Ingrid returned to doctoral study in computer science at CUNY's Graduate Center after receiving a MS in computer science, with distinction, from NYIT; a MA in education from NYU; and a career in education and technology staff development. Her research interests are in using how humans interpret and understand data visually to develop methods for information visualization and organization.

Ingrid joined the GK-12 program in the fall of 2010 and has been working at the Legacy School for Integrated Studies with 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students in Earth Science. For the Authentic Researc Module Ingrid and her cooperating teacher are developing a student centered interactive "textbook" for new technology.
