My research is in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) with 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 have a number of other affiliations and roles around Northwestern University:
- Director of Graduate Studies, Technology and Social Behavior PhD program
- Co-chair 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)
