Dr. Gergle’s research is in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) with an interest in developing a theoretical understanding of the role that visual information plays in supporting communication and small group interactions. A key component of his work is the application of social and cognitive psychology theory to the design, deployment and evaluation of computing technologies.
