Greetings! I joined IBM Research in 2010 after receiving my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University.

My research interests broadly lie in human-computer interaction, although I strongly believe that the most interesting problems require a highly interdisciplinary approach. Specific areas I'm interested in include educational tools, end-user programming, social computing, experimental psychology, social science, visualization, computational linguistics, machine learning, and statistics.

I've worked on a number of interesting projects at IBM, including:

  • Entanglion, an open-source board game to teach the fundamental principles of quantum computing
  • CardKit, a novel programming method for drones and other IoT devices
  • TJBot, a cute open-source paper robot, and the TJBot Swift Playground for programming it from an iPad
  • Mobile apps to influence healthy habit formation
  • Mobile and wearable solutions for improving field worker productivity and safety
  • Psycholinguistic analysis and personality modeling
  • User interfaces and visualizations for statistical anomaly detection
  • Expertise modeling and interfaces that motivate users to improve their expertise
  • Creative uses of technology to improve in-store retail experiences

In my former life as a grad student, my research focused on collaborative online video watching. For more information about that work, please visit my site at CMU.
