My research is focused on reframing systems to be more human-centered through design. My current areas of emphasis are examining personal productivity and planning systems, and considering small group collaborations for large scale impact through the studio model and creating effective micro-communities focused within narrow scopes. Larger goals for these concepts include creating a community-facing studio which uses human-centered instructional design to address real-world problems at the local government level, finding and working with my research micro-community to shape and develop the path of research in this area, and developing a system of empirically derived practices for personal productivity.
