My research is broadly in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Social Computing. I have an interest in developing a theoretical understanding of the role that visual information plays in supporting communication and group interactions. A key component of my work is the application of social and cognitive psychology theory to the design, deployment and evaluation of computing technologies.
I also hold a number of other positions at Northwestern University:
- Formerly, I served as the Director of Graduate Studies, Technology and Social Behavior PhD program (~2010-2020)
- Co-chair and founding faculty of the Faculty Research Council of the Segal Design Institute
- Faculty Associate of the Northwestern University Cognitive Science Program
- Fellow of the Communications Residential College (CRC)
