to my home page. I hold a dual-culture faculty position at the
intersection of Information & Computer Sciences and Library
& Information Science. I'm interested in how people
integrate diverse types of knowledge, from document collections
to the work of people with different kinds of expertise. I
study interdisciplinary scientific collaborations with the NASA
Astrobiology Institute at UH, and social Q&A
communities like Answerbag.
I am also Chair of the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Communication & Information Sciences, which encompasses four units and three colleges across the University of Hawaii.
