Aditya Johri studies the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for learning and knowledge sharing, with a focus on cognition in informal environments including online communities. He also examines the role of ICT in supporting distributed work among globally dispersed workers and in furthering social development in emerging economies. Johri is especially interested in understanding the relationship between our social and material context. His primary research has expanded from the examination of ethnographic data collection and considerable time observing and talking to people in the course of their daily work/life. Johri’s research has taken him into the classroom environment as well as into organizations where learning and collaboration are keys to success.
