Patrick C. Shih

About Me

I'm an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington. I direct the Social Computing Lab (SoCo Lab). I am a Fellow of the Center for Computer-Mediated Communication (CCMC). I am also an affiliated faculty at the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior (CISAB), the Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI), and the Institute for Software Research (ISR) at the University of California, Irvine.

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 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.

Research Areas
