Sera Thornton, PhD

MITx Digital Learning Lab Fellow
Department of Biology
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

A Pittsburgh, PA native with interdisciplinary interests, I am currently working at the nexus of biology, education, technology, and graphics in Cambridge, MA.

As an MITx Digital Learning Lab Fellow in the MIT Department of Biology, I work with a small team to bring the best of research-based digital learning to our students, and to learners all over the world. We collaborate with professors to augment on-campus biology courses, as well as to develop and implement Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on a global scale. My speciality within my team is creating and curating the graphics, animations, and video for these projects.
