I am a Research Staff Member at IBM Thomas J. Watson Center.

At IBM Research, I study social technologies, AI systems and their influence on user behavior and interaction. My interests and prior work lie at the intersection of machine learning, human-computer interaction, and design.

I use a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods in my research to address HCI related questions and interaction design. I have published my work at The ACM Conference on Human Factors and Computing Systems (CHI) , The ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW), and other reputable HCI and information systems conferences. I received my PhD in Human Computer Interaction at the University of Maryland, College Park.
