Introduction

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at University of Washington.

My research group focuses on understanding, designing, and developing technologies that encourage people to communicate and interact in ways that are self- and welfare-improving. We extend and build on theories from a number of fields, including psychology, communication and economics. Our application areas include behavior change, online support and Q&A, and civic and local participation.

I was previously an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University with a joint appointment in Communication and Media and Information. I received my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

My research has been supported by National Science Foundation, National Institute of Health and Intel.


Interested in Research?

I am actively recruiting students at all levels who are intersted in human-computer interaction, social computing, behavior change and related topics. I work with students with a variety of backgrounds. Send me an email to schedule a 30 minutes meeting. Please include:

  • Why Me? There are a lot of great faculty in HCDE at UW. Why do you want to work with me specifically? Is there some interest you have related to my recent publications?
  • Your Background and Skills. Are you good at design? Can you code? Are you a good writer? Have you conducted experiments? Can you interview? Send me some samples or a link to your portfolio. These will help me decide if there are any projects that you might be able to contribute to.

Teaching

Course Info

HCDE 544 (Winter)
Research Methods I (Quantitative)

Introduces experimental, quasi-experimental, and related research methods in human centered design and engineering. Examines the relationship between theory and research, hypothesis testing, experimental designs, modes of observation, sampling, validity, and data analysis and interpretation. Students undertake a research project. Prerequisite: Introductory statistics course.

HCDE 536 (Spring)
Interaction Design and Prototyping

An interface provides the framework, elements, and resources for a “conversation” to take place between people and products. An interface should provide an expectation of what a product can do and how a person can appropriately engage a product in order to take action. This class, you will study and design interfaces, through user-centered design processes.

Directed Research Groups (DRG)
Various Projects

I lead a number of directed research groups. They are a great way to work on a research project and to work with me. For the updated list of DRGs, please refer to this page: www.hcde.washington.edu/research/directed
