About Me

I'm an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. I direct the Societal Computing Lab (SoCo Lab).

My research focuses on the study of sociotechnical systems and mechanisms to enhance physical and mental wellbeing and to facilitate civic engagement and environmental stewardship. I utilize mixed methods approaches to tackle research problems in online and geographic communities. Specifically, my current research focuses on leveraging the awareness of individual and community activities embedded in sensor technologies, smart devices, social media, and online forums in the design, prototyping, and deployment of novel personal informatics interfaces and civic engagement platforms.

Prior to joining IUB, I was a Research Associate and Lecturer in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State. I received my Ph.D. in Information and Computer Science from UC Irvine, where I was a Chancellor's Fellow, my M.S. in Information Networking from Carnegie Mellon University, and my B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from UCLA. I have also worked at Microsoft Research and IBM Research.
