Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am currently a doctoral researcher at Tufts University's Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Development, and a researcher at Project New Media Literacies at MIT's Comparative Media Studies.

I have a diverse background ranging from developmental psychology, music, and computer science, and am very interested in learning about how young people think about their engagement with the 21st century digital age. More specifically, how young people leverage all the technologies around them to thrive in a post-modern, media-rich environment.

H1510: Creating Your Techno-biography in HSSP Fall 2008 (Sep. 13, 2008)
In this course students will explore a variety of new media tools and develop an interactive and visual biography of their lives as creative media makers. Learn to develop remixes and mash-ups, design avatar characters and take your characters across platforms such as social-networking sites and the blogosphere. Make cool visualizations about your hobbies and neighborhood. Each week we will explore a different tool and use that tool to add to your techno-biography.
