Research Interests:

Developing technology to support life-relevant learning environments, participatory design with children

My work is about understanding how we can help people come to see themselves in new ways by helping them form new relationships with information.  When children begin to interact with the information available in their daily lives (e.g., about ingredients, sports plays, dances), they begin to take on new roles and see themselves in new, more empowered ways.  The future of information lies in using technology to enable trans-disciplinary learning experiences.
