Have you ever looked at a piece of technology and wondered how its designers figured humans would actually use it?

Or looked at a bunch of people using a piece of tech and wonder how they feel about it, and what it enables for them in their daily lives?

I do this. All the time.

That curiosity, that drive to know, that will to understand.

This is why I'm a social computing researcher and educator. I'm passionate about making sure that technology fits a real need and makes a difference in the lives of real people.

I don't design for elites - I work on projects that make the everyday life of ordinary people just a little bit better.

I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Social Computing and HCI at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.

I teach human-centered design, interactive data visualization and introductory social science.
