Sanjay Rebello is Associate Professor of Physics at Kansas State University. His research interest is in transfer of learning and how learners activate and coordinate their small-grain-size conceptual resources to make sense of new situations. He is particularly interested in the application of transfer of learning to problem solving in introductory undergraduate physics courses for both structured and
ill-structured problems.

Carlos Wexler is an Associate Professor of Physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Missouri. He received a degree
from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and a Ph.D. from the University of Washington (Seattle, WA, USA). His research in condensed
matter theory includes the study of highly correlated electron systems and organic materials, phase transitions and computer simulations of hydrogen
and methane storage in nanoporous materials. At the University of
Missouri, he has taught courses ranging from introductory physics for
non-majors to advanced graduate courses in quantum many-body theory. He is particularly interested in methods that improve structural understanding of science ("expert learning methods") and on making students take an active role in their own education.
