About Me

I am currently a Research Fellow at the University of Michigan School of Information. I work with Dr. Nicole Ellison in the U-M School of Information and Dr. Rey Junco in the School of Education at Iowa State University on a research project entitled “Evaluating the Effectiveness of Social Media for Improving College Access.” The goal of the project is to assess the effectiveness of a series of social media applications and tools, funded by the College Knowledge Challenge project, that were designed to address college access issues.

I recently completed my PhD at the U-M School of Information where I worked with Dr. Soo Young Rieh. I am part of the Information Behavior and Interaction (IBI) Research Group, and Michigan Interactive and Social Computing (MISC).
