Browsing graphic novels at Fantastic Comics in Berkeley, CA.

Research/Teaching/Practice Interests

  • Digital literacies in recreational, popular media for youth and adults
  • Diverse young adult literature, resources, and services
  • Online research methods and ethics
  • Social information behavior theory development
  • User experience and community engagement in virtual environments
  • Game-based learning and game studies

I am particularly interested in the depictions and uses of digital and critical literacies in recreational, popular media, such as online games, young adult literature, graphic novels, music, and film.  I hope to explore ways to leverage these media to provide more immersive, connected, and engaging resources, services, and digital literacy instruction for digital youth and adults.
