Research Areas

We conduct research at the intersection of human-computer interaction, social computing, and information science.

Social Computing

Social interactions are at the center of human activity. Understanding how collectives of teams, communities, organizations, and markets disseminate information using technology is crucial to our understanding of computing.


Systemic disparities (racial disparities, gender disparities, economic disparities, urban/rural disparities) permeate social systems online. This research trust seeks to combat these systemic disparities by focusing on two primary problems: (1) causally understanding when/why systemic disparities do or do not occur, and (2) building sociotechnical systems to intervene on the production of these disparities.

Citizen Science

Public participation in scientific research (PPSR) has dramatically transformed the scientific enterprise. To enhance citizen science requires that we understand the capabilities of both amateurs and the technologies that mediated collaborations.

Health Informatics

Information about health is personal, sensitive, and complex. We study how people generate, manage, and make sense of diverse types of health information, both individually and in groups.
