I am interested in educational contexts supportive of human development. Specific areas of research focus include motivation and engagement of youth and adolescents (both in school and in after-school contexts), engagement and learning in educational video games, mentoring, and positive psychology.

Dr. Shernoff is the Director of the Rutgers University Center for Mathematics, Science, and Computer Education during the 2014-2015 academic year.
