Research Interests:

My research interests lie in the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), and social computing. Fundamentally, I seek to understand individuals agency, action, and learning in their interactions with a rapidly shifting and increasingly complex socio-technical environment. In my past and current research, I examine this question primarily in three distinct projects, including player interaction with large, complex gaming system, civic technology in China, and user experience (UX) designers' design practice and informal learning through social media.
