Dr. Kemp's work explores the intersection of digital and physical learning spaces and the emerging tools and techniques supporting innovation in them. More specifically, his interests follow teachers, learners and information professionals using communication technologies for education.

Shortly before joining the San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science faculty in 2006, he co-founded the SLOODLE project (Second Life Object Oriented Distance Learning Environment) with Dr. Daniel Livingstone of University of West of Scotland. This grant-funded project extended the Moodle learning management system with avatars and user-constructed virtual settings.

He has served as a conference co-chair for the Sloan-C's Emerging Technology in Online Learning Conference in 2010.

He received his Ed.D. in Educational Leadership and Change from Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara in 2011 where his dissertation focused on learner acceptance of new technologies. He also earned Master’s Degrees in Learning Design from Stanford and in Journalism from Northwestern.
