Welcome to my home page. I hold a dual-culture faculty position
in Information & Computer
Sciences (ICS) and Library
& Information Science (LIS) at the University of
Hawaii. 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, and social Q&A communities like Answerbag.
I'm an Associate Professor and Associate Chair of ICS, and Chair of the LIS Program. From 2011-2015, I was Chair of the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Communication & Information Sciences (CIS), which encompasses four units and three colleges across the University of Hawaii. If you're interested in any of these programs, feel free to contact me.
