My papers are mostly about youth engagement, popular culture and using computer-human interaction to improve civic engagement. You also can read my medium stories here

This chapter is  about evaluating young people's participation in Rocky Hill Trail project. The Rocky Hill Trail project grew out of a more encompassing effort to enlist youth in discussing, identifying, and promoting needed change in their community. Young people could transfer a path of dirt, which they used as their way to school, to a paved and refurbished route and named it Rocky hill trail. You can read more about the chapter and the book here.
