Rebecca Krosnick


About me:

I am a 2nd year PhD student in the EECS department at the University of Michigan, advised by Professors Steve Oney and Walter Lasecki. I study human-computer interaction and am generally interested in end-user programming, making it easier for non-experts to create computer programs. Currently I am exploring programming by demonstration and crowdsourcing techniques for building dynamic user interfaces. Previously I worked as a software engineer at MathWorks. I received my SB and MEng in Computer Science from MIT, where I was advised by Professor Rob Miller.

Projects

VideoDoc

As online education grows in popularity, more people are learning using educational lecture videos. Videos are engaging to watch, but difficult to navigate when searching for a particular topic. To address this problem, we built VideoDoc, a lecture video interface that merges a video with the organizational features of a textbook to make educational videos easier to navigate.
