I am Professor at SLAIS, The iSchool at The University of British Columbia. From 2010-2015 I was Director of the iSchool@UBC. 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).

This wordpress site describes my research activities. See the iSchool@UBC pages for more information on the School, faculty and students, Research Day, and the SLAISMatters newsletter.

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.
