My research focuses on the ways that technology mediates knowledge, understanding, and our practice of giving and receiving explanations.
I explore the theoretical and philosophical foundations of scientific explanation and their potential for enabling understanding. I then apply these theoretical foundations toward use cases in computer science and human computer interaction, such as explanatory frameworks for decision support systems and norms of information sharing on social media.
