I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University. As a behavioral researcher of information systems and human-computer interaction, I design, observe, and evaluate how people perceive, use, and live with technologies such as robots and machines. I also work on Stigmergic Coordination in open source software developers with Dr. Kevin Crowston.
My dissertation is a series of three experimental studies that tap into how group of multiple people work with and through robots to accomplish a shared goal. I have taught courses that involve multiple disciplines ranged from social psychology, human-computer interaction, information systems, computer-mediated communication, and design. My PhD advisor was Dr. Lionel Robert.
