I’m currently a quantitative social science researcher and a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Michigan. My research agenda takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining communication, socio-technical, and psychology perspectives. One line of this work considers how cognitive processes influence the user experiences and effects of mobile and social media. Other work aims to understand how people can accomplish their communication goals and how social technologies can be designed around psychological research on goal attainment and self-regulation. See my publications for more information.
