Current Research

My research interests are in the application of psychological theories and methods to the design and use of computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) environments. This includes basic research on the development of collaboration in children and on understanding the processes involved in effective collaborative learning. It also involves designing CSCL environments that are underpinned by the psychology of learning and evaluating their educational effectiveness. Another strand to the research involves basic studies of human communication (verbal and nonverbal) and applied studies of the impact of different media (e.g., video links) on communication processes and task performance. I am also currently researching collaboration and communication via social media.
