Joseph Lee is IT Director of the Learning Lab.
A native of the Philadelphia area, Joe started at The Wharton School in 2008. His role and responsibilities have changed over the past 7 years, taking on a more senior position as a project manager and application developer. He arrived at the Lab with almost 10 years in higher education, excited to apply his knowledge and experience to help Wharton faculty change the way they approach their pedagogical goals and instruct their students. Known for his infectious laugh and amiable personality, Joe lives in the city, where he spends his spare time running several fantasy professional sports leagues and honing his skills as a connoisseur of sandwiches.
Jane Eisenstein is Senior Applications Developer for the Learning Lab.
Jane has been developing software for the web since the ’90s. These days, she’s become particularly interested in what makes software “smart.” In her free time, Jane practices mindfulness meditation and enjoys playing Sudoku, walking in nature, and attending Philadelphia area tech meetups.
Heather Meier is Operations Manager at the Learning Lab.
Having worked at Wharton for several years in other capacities, Heather is now responsible for simulation delivery at Wharton’s main campus in Philadelphia and the West Coast campus in San Francisco. She specializes in process analysis, operations, communications, and project management. And, as a former educator and current tech enthusiast, Heather loves helping students achieve a deeper level of learning through interactive education technology (making the Learning Lab her perfect habitat). She also enjoys bringing people together through the power of home-cooked meals, as well as relaxing outside, boating, and watching her beloved (Super Bowl LII Champion!!!) Eagles.
Jerricka Hill is responsible for Simulation Delivery for the Learning Lab.
Jerricka has been working in IT at Penn since her first day on campus as a freshman, a long time ago. She loves process improvement, documentation, and information architecture; thus, it should come as no surprise that she was delighted to get office supplies in her stocking as a child – including a mid-’90s, tan Swingline stapler that still has pride of place on her desk. (Suffice it to say, she’s fun at parties!) In addition to stationery, Jerricka loves biking with her husband, architecture, interior design, and just about anything made with fig.
Jennifer Kelley is the Learning Lab’s Content Specialist.
Jen’s extensive background in publishing spans journalism, public relations, communications, and eLearning courseware for K-12 PD. She currently serves as the Lab’s wordsmith and copy editor. While her specialty is developing creative content for the team’s ever-growing catalogue of educational games and sims, she lavishes equal attention on the Learning Lab blog, drafting marketing material and, generally, anything editorial. When not generating prose and playing with syntax, you can find her rocking out to audiobooks, jogging with Flip (her dog), or chopping way more garlic than the recipe requires.
