I'm an assistant professor in the iSchool (College of Information Science and Technology) at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

I study how emergent uses of technology create opportunities for people to construct new knowledge together. I’m particularly interested in new literacies that are required for successful participation in an increasingly technologically mediated society. Sometimes my projects involve designing systems that support new kinds of literacies and literate action. Other times I study the ways people adapt to and appropriate existing technologies.

I received my PhD from the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology in human-centered computing with a focus on social computing and learning sciences. My MLIS is from the School of Information at University of Texas at Austin.
