Current projects focus on social-cognitive aspects of social software, mobile social software, and enabling social collection and analysis of data.
I received my Ph.D. in Social and Personality Psychology from the University of Washington in 2002.
There I studied personality and the unique and stable patterns of emotion and behavior each person shows in response to social situations.
