Noteworthy: Recently completed an assignment as a visiting research scholar at the Smithsonian Institution, where he helped Smithsonian teams create displays that tap interactive technologies to engage visitors in the stories behind the displays in the Smithsonian's museums

Age: 42

Residence: Mt. Lebanon

Family: Wife, Helene Hollingsworth; son, Jakob, 9; daughter, Annika, 3 12

Education: Bachelor of Science in marketing, University of Arizona, 1991; master's in secondary education, mathematics, Arizona State University, 1995; master's in research methodology, Indiana University, Bloomington, 1998; and doctorate in learning and cognition, Indiana University, Bloomington, 2000

Quote: "More technology is being integrated into museums to engage visitors. The 'Windows on Collection' at the National Museum of the American Indian is a good example. A touch-screen kiosk in front of the display case there lets you examine high-resolution pictures of the artifacts up close. It also provides extra information about the artifacts. This is a great deal of fun, and it is putting all of my knowledge about learning, research and evaluation on the front line to create displays that must engage visitors quickly."
