I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Information Sciences & Technology, Volgenau School of Engineering, George Mason University. My official webpage is here. My personal webpage is available here. I direct the Engineering Education and Cyberlearning Laboratory (EECL). I received my Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2007.


I study the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for learning and knowledge sharing, with a focus on cognition in informal environments including online communities. 

My research on cognition and learning has appeared in the following journals: Journal of Engineering Education, International Journal of Engineering Education, Engineering Studies, Journal of Computing in Higher Education, and Research in Learning Technology.

I have published my information systems and technology related research in Journal of Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Computers in Human Behavior, Information Technology and People, Information Technology for Development, Information Systems Frontiers, and Information and Software Technology.

My research has also appeared in the proceedings of International Conference of the Learning Sciences, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, IEEE Frontiers in Education, ASEE Annual Conference, and ACM Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), CHI, among others.

The Cambridge Handbook of Engineering Education Research (CHEER), co-edited with Barbara Olds, is now available.
