I am Director and Professor at SLAIS, The iSchool at The University of British Columbia. I joined UBC in 2010 after 14 years as a faculty member at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).

My research focuses on how the Internet and information and communication technologies (ICTs) support work, learning and social interaction. I approach this primarily from a social network analysis perspective. Listed below are some current activities and selected articles by topic that relate to my areas of work and interest which include e-learning, learning analytics, social media, computer-mediated communication, and online crowds and communities. The following is a brief summary of my research interests and publications. More details are available on associated pages.

For a general overview, see my areas of research.

{… and right now I don’t know why there are two ‘home’ pages showing!}
