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 groups of workers submitting input simultaneously to create a collective intelligence capable of completing tasks better than any constituent member of the crowd via mediation. 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
