Areas of interest

Computing mediates an increasingly large portion of our everyday experience, necessitating that research in Human-Computer Interaction attend to the relationship between people and the ever-more complex technological environments in which they live, work, and play. My research seeks to understand the embedded, interconnected nature of these emerging forms of interaction and to build tools that help people understand, manage, and make use of the rich and dynamic resources available to them.
