My interdisciplinary research is at the intersection of systemic design and computing with an emphasis on educational practices. I'm particularly interested in the concept of "scale" and how we use multi-scale thinking to conceive of and solve problems. Although I focus on Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) and interfaces, my work is mainly about bridging the gap between the physical and virtual worlds and often extends into material technologies and practices as well. An inventor at heart, I've been known to spend as much time hovering over a table saw as I do in front of a computer screen or behind a book. My goal is to always find the right balance between action and reflection and to teach my students how to achieve the same.
