I am a human-AI interaction designer and researcher. My research goal is to better understand how to bring human and societal goods to bear on frontier AI technologies and how to make them more accessible for human-centered AI product/ service innovation. Recently, my group has been focusing on two types of AI technologies: natural language generation systems and pervasive sensing + AI ecosystem for mental health care.

My group's research has been supported by the NSF, the NIH, Schmidt Futures, Cornell Center for Teaching Innovation, and Weill Cornell Medicine, among others.
I mentor students in both information science and computer science.  Cornell students interested in joining us: I always seek the right students to join our ongoing research projects. New RAship positions typically become available at the beginning of each semester (spring, summer, fall). Feel free to email me around that time, mention [RAship application] in the email subject line, and briefly describe your skillsets and research interests.​​​​​​​
