Summary of Research

Broadly speaking my research has focused on the ways in which information and communications technologies (ICT's) can be used to improve communities. Design research, often in the area of human-computer interaction (HCI) has examined how ICT’s, particularly mobile and web-based ICT’s be used to support the economic and civic goals of place-based communities through leveraging more effectively social media interactions and location awareness. More traditional media research has explored how reporters working in hyperlocal online newsrooms are leveraging new media technologies for expanding democratic opportunities for citizens.
