|Shih, Patrick||Informatics, School of Informatics and Computing / Bloomington|
Bio: I'm an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington. I am a Fellow of the Center for Computer-Mediated Communication (CCMC). I am also an affiliated faculty at the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior (CISAB), the Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI), and the Institute for Software Research (ISR) at the University of California, Irvine. I am interested in utilizing mixed methods approaches to tackle research problems in online and geographic communities. Specifically, my current research focuses on leveraging awareness of individual and community activities embedded in sensor technologies, smart devices, social media, and online forums in the design and construction of novel persuasive interfaces and civic engagement platforms that facilitate sustainable motivational and behavioral changes.
