Robin’s current research and advocacy work focus on Open Education, and how universities can innovate in order to bring down costs for students, increase interdisciplinary collaboration, and refocus the academic world on strengthening the public good. She is a professor at Plymouth State University, part of the University System of New Hampshire, and the director of the Interdisciplinary Studies program, a program where students customize their own majors in a high-technology ecosystem designed around increasing student access and agency in education.
