Bio

<== My work explores (usually by building things) how emerging technologies can serve expressive and social goals. I’m interested in creating new relationships among media, performer, audience, and the built environment.

Currently, I am Assistant Dean for Technology and Innovation at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.  There, I helped to start and still co-direct REMAP, the Center for Research in Engineering, Media and Performance, a collaboration with the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science.  I am also Co-PI and application team lead for the Named Data Networking “future internet architecture” research project. From 2006-12, I was area lead for participatory and urban sensing at the NSF Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS), where I learned a lot about multi-disciplinary collaboration in large scale research efforts.
