Research interests

Research interests in cognitive science and human-computer interaction. Currently researching how individuals allocate time and effort across multiple tasks; how technology supports and shapes collaborative problem solving and the formation and maintenance of friendships; emotional and motivational constraints on the exploration of novel interactive services.
