Research interests

I conduct research in the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Learning Science and Collaboration. My research aims to explore ways to promote efficent online learning through understanding emerging teaching and learning behaviors online. I also explore the cognitive processes behind online group collaboration, working to improve online discussion, collaboration, and mutual understanding. Based on the insights, I’m developing new collaboration tools to support online learning.
