Curriculum Vitae





I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human-Centered Computing at the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI. I hold a PhD in Human-Centered Computing from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and a MA in Media Studies from the University of Western Ontario. My research is at the intersection of computer-supported cooperative work, science and technology studies, and socio-technical systems. I am particularly interested in knowledge infrastructures and infrastructuring for global environmental science, multidisciplinary data sharing and reuse, and interdisciplinary scientific collaborations. My work aims to understand the role of technology and data in scientific work practices to inform the design of new infrastructures to support scientific work. I am also interested in the ways in which new technologies are changing science and the processes of scientific knowledge construction.
