I am currently a Visiting Scientist at the MIT Media Lab in the Affective Computing Research Group. My long-term field of research is the Role of Emotions in Learning. I am currently working on the role of the Bardic Arts as a traditional method of learning.
My other affiliations include the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis and the School of Communication and Journalism at Utah State University where I assist in the curriculum in Online Journalism.
I was formerly a Visiting Scientist in the Educational Technology Research Group at BBN Systems and Technologies. Additional professional background information can be found here.
My interest in writing encyclopedia articles in my areas of expertise dates back to 2004 when I co-authored an 8-page article entitled Electronic (Virtual) Communities in the Encyclopedia of International Media and Communications. My newest effort at crafting encyclopedia articles is on Google Knol, where I have prepared a number of articles based on 25 years worth of original research.
