My research on distributed cognition examines how groups of people can collaborate to process information on a scale that exceeds individual cognitive capabilities. For example, I am investigating how large social collaborative knowledge systems such as Wikipedia and del.icio.us function and can be made more effective. I am also a collaborator on the Cognitive Atlas project, whose goal is to build a knowledge base of mental processes, tasks, and brain systems using principles of distributed cognition.
