Kyle Johnsen, an assistant professor in the College of Engineering, says that both his teaching and research are grounded in the idea that social, context-rich, active and hands-on activities are extremely powerful learning vehicles.
What are some highlights of your career at UGA?
Reflecting back on the five years I’ve been here, highlights include the large number of interdisciplinary collaborations I’ve had and currently maintain at UGA. I started working with our Medical Partnership, but since then, I have started research endeavors with many excellent colleagues within engineering, computer science, journalism, education, veterinary medicine, chemistry, music, theater and business. I’m very grateful that UGA affords me these opportunities and supports them with wonderful interdisciplinary programs that bring us together, such as the Obesity Initiative.
