I am researching how we can use rhetorical communication theory when designing interactive computer systems and whether it might allow us to address end-user motivation directly. My case is corporate knowledge management systems for innovation. I hope to contribute with a different understanding of the human-to-human computer mediated relationship in a corporate setting. At Stanford I will be studying persuasive technology at the Persuasive Technology Lab and trying to establish how this field might be valuable in ensuring end-user contributions in corporate systems.
