In today’s world, there is not a more exciting and indispensable field than Computer Science. Yet, to address society’s most urgent and complex problems, pure technical knowledge is no longer enough. What we need are creative, multidisciplinary solutions that encompass an understanding of technology and people, along with a deep desire to improve the state of our world.

My research embodies these values. I tackle timely, high-impact societal problems including: cross-cultural collaboration systems to mitigate culture and language barriers in global work teams, eco-feedback and open data visualizations for environmental sustainability, and ubiquitous technologies in public spaces to address loneliness and isolation. My work is situated within HCI, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Ubiquitous Computing, where I draw heavily from psychology, cultural anthropology, media art and urban studies to design technological interventions to improve collaboration and deepen human connection.
