Research Overview

I am interested in understanding how people use networked systems, and using this information to build better systems. My research has looked at domains from the first large study of multiplayer networked games to the largest-ever study of a wireless network. We are now exploring online social networks such as Facebook, and in particular trying to understand users' privacy concerns with these networks, and building better and more efficient networks as a result.
