I'm a fourth year PhD student at University of Michigan in Computer Science & Engineering and the School of Information. I'm advised by
Dr. Cliff Lampe, and am a member of the Social Media Research Lab.
My research focuses on building and studying the use of AI and crowd-sourcing tools that understand context and use it to optimize individual and organization productivity. I study human-AI teams and how to make these more effective via incorporating theories from organizational studies, cognitive science, and communication -- from a human-human to a human-AI context.
