Hi! I'm Harmanpreet Kaur.

I'm a second year PhD student at University of Michigan School of Information. I'm advised by Dr. Cliff Lampe and Dr. Walter Lasecki, and am a member of the Social Media Research Lab and the CRO+MA (Crowds+Machines) lab.
My research focuses on building and studying the use of artificial intelligence and crowdsourcing tools that allow people to delegate their daily communication and information needs, and enhance their work productivity.
