Bio

Markeya earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Nebraska at Kearney., where she was a member of the volleyball and track & field teams. She earned her Master’s degree and PhD in the Cognition, Learning, and Development specialization in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Her research interests center on differences in undergraduate students’ motivation, metacognition, and self-regulation across authentic learning settings, and how those factors relate to learning and retention. Prior to joining the College of Engineering, Markeya worked as part of an interdisciplinary research team studying the impacts of specially designed learning exercises that integrate computational thinking and creative thinking. As a native of Wood River, Nebraska, she is a life-long Husker, and most of her free time is spent playing, coaching, and watching volleyball.
