Learning in Open Source Software Development Projects
Online surveys and archival log data analysis of cross-cultural SourceForge projects to examine how developers acquire different kinds of technical and collaboration skills through their participation in those projects.
Development & Design of Cyber-infrastructure Systems
NSF-funded project with Charlotte Lee. We are examining user-developer interactions in GENI's four cyber-infrastructures (http://www.geni.net)
Dissertation project based on interviews, content analysis of listservs & wikis; examined how developers influence competition and the emergence of a dominant design among four cyber-infrastructures while those systems are still under development (http://www.geni.net).
Neural Correlates of Online Search Behavior & Information Scent
Early-stage lab experiment comparing fMRI, EEG and Emotiv sensor (http://www.emotiv.com) measures of user reactions to
websites with high vs. low information scent. Goal is to identify neural correlates of online information search behavior. (PI: Dennis
