As an Assistant Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Interactive Computing I lead the Culture and Technology Lab (CAT Lab). My work is focused on understanding how culture and technology practices impact motivations for learning and the use of technology.
I use many research methods, but most of my projects are initiated through studies with specific audiences around their technology use. These participants are co-designers in the research and in the production of new learning environments and technologies.
Areas of Interest: Informal Learning Environments – Gender, Race, Ethnicity and Technology Use – Digital Games – Maker Movement – Art Museums – Computer Science Learning
