Biography

My research addresses the critical problem of understanding how social computing systems can be designed to not only enable people to share information, but also to facilitate meaningful interaction, realize opportunities for social support, and maximize human well-being. I use mixed methods and theorize social media behaviors such as sensitive disclosures and interactions around them, and provide designs and recommendations for social technologies that foster mental/emotional well-being. I concentrate on forms of human experience that can be isolating, stigmatized, and lead to distress including abuse, mental illness, and pregnancy loss.
