My central research interest is the impact of information technology on group interaction. This has grown from my study of sociology as a supporting field and my use of a computer-based group experiment for my dissertation. I have leveraged my experience with computer-supported experimentation and teamed with others to study group interaction, group behavior, and other phenomena involving multiple participating individuals.
