Advisor: 

Areas of Research: 

I am interested in how information technologies connect people who are spread out in space and time. How has social media technology altered the “international student experience”? How are social media and online learning systems (including both for-credit programs and Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs) connecting geographically dispersed peoples, both for community building and educational purposes? What are the ramifications of changes and new/current patterns in those connections across space and time, and what might the future implications of those changes and patterns be?
