I lead the Community-Computer Interaction Lab (C-CIL).
I have previously been:

- a postdoc (Research Associate) at Open Lab within Newcastle University
- a PhD student studying Informatics in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, with a minor in Inquiry Methodology.
- a Master's student studying Human Computer Interaction Design at Indiana University.
- a Bachelor of Science student studying Computer Science at Ball State University, with a minor in Mathematics.
My research interests center on the impact that digital technologies have on how communities are formed and maintained. I am particularly interested in how certain kinds of relationships between individuals within a community are encouraged while others are discouraged, and how various technologies are used to implicitly enforce these distinctions. How interpersonal relationships are sanctioned (in both senses of the word) plays a vital role in the inclusivity, welcomeness, and diversity of a community.
