I am seeking a graduate student to start a PhD in Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State next fall. Penn State's application deadline is December 15:

I am pretty widely interested in HCI and CSCW areas. My main research area now is mobile technology, especially issues of coordination and awareness, altruism and peer-to-peer exchange, and local democracy, urban planning and community informatics (aka smart cities). I have current funded projects on time banking and context aware peer-to-peer exchange, smart camera prosthetics for visually impaired persons, municipal geodeliberation and interactive tools for collaborative information analysis (all NSF; see links below). I have smaller efforts underway on Internet feed aggregation, community heritage and place making, collaborative educational technology, opportunistic political discussion, psychometrics for user experience research, and sustainable information technology. I have planned/proposed work on healthy living support for elderly people, collaborative exercise, and support for diverse student motivations in MOOCs.

Some links to projects and recent results -<><>

One benefit of joining our group is that we have on board a talented crew of PhD students and post docs, who collaborate with and teach one another. We also collaborate closely with Mary Beth Rosson, Heng Xu, Guoray Cai, Eun Kyoung Choe and Steve Haynes, all of whom have active research efforts. The college of IST has another dozen or so faculty researching a wide range of HCI problems, methods and theories.
