Research projects


SenSee - Sensor Driven Mobile Application Development Study: Currently investigating students’ sensor driven application development processes.
status: new

Micro-Coordination (Phase II): Currently designing a series of research works that extend the micro-coordination dissertation work. A part of this work is now supported by NSF EAGER Grant (Against the Wind: Reflective Opportunities in Micro-Coordination).
status: new

Couple Arguing & Attention Study: Assisted in planning and designing two controlled experiments. Currently involved in analyzing the collected data.
status: on-going

Micro-Coordination (dissertation work): Designed and implemented Tuple Space-based applications to investigate micro-coordination among co-located people. Conducted two controlled experimental studies with over 400 participants using Tuple-Space-based applications. This work was supported by NSF Grant. IIS-1018607 HCC-Small.
status: completed. more publication pending.

Playground Game: Conducted an observational study at a local middle school investigating how students coordinate behaviors in a game-club context.
