Hi, I'm Phil Adams

I'm a PhD candidate in Cornell University's Information Science Department. My research interests are in social and mobile computing with a focus on small and brief moments of interaction; my dissertation work is on the in situ momentary measurement of affect, stress, and chronic pain.

I'm also interested in how and why people participate in online communities (and why they don't!), in brief moments of socially supportive behavior, in terse visualizations affording glimpses of (personal) data, and in the capture and sharing of images for communication and self-assessment. Here's my resume (.pdf).

I enjoy brief and powerful thoughts.
