About Me

I create systems that use both human and machine computation to solve problems quickly and reliably. I have helped introduce the idea of continuous real-time crowdsourcing, as well as the crowd agent model, which uses computer-mediated groups of people submitting input simultaneously to create a collective intelligence capable of completing tasks better than any constituent member. My work is supported by the National Science Foundation and a Microsoft Research Graduate Fellowship.

Interests: Crowdsourcing, Human Computation, Human-Computer Interaction, Collective Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence

I am graduating in Spring 2015 and am currently searching for academic/research positions!
