A little about me...
I am a Research Scientist at the Visible Process Lab in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University working on the XSEAD project. My research explores experiential media systems with a focus in three primary areas: experience capture, composition and reuse; interactivity in media arts; and participatory communities. My research engages human centered, process oriented, & interdisciplinary perspectives to understand complex multimedia systems in applied contexts of use.
Experience Capture, Composition & Reuse
How do we capture + represent personal experience through media collections and computational tools? How can these long-term personal archives, e.g. lifelogs and social media, enable new insights and understanding of personal, societal or global significance?
Participatory Communities, Curation & Coordination
How can understanding of complex heterogeneous communities be gathered through community contribution and action? What are the strategies for digital curation and coordination that help identify shared value and meaning for diverse interdisciplinary communities?
Interactivity in Media Arts Applications
What is the nature and contribution of computational interactivity in already richly interactive spaces such as in media arts performance? How do media-arts perspectives on the development of interactive works enrich human-centered computing exploration?
