I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where I direct the People, Agents, Interactions, and Systems (PAIRS) research group.

My research explores how interactive and algorithmic systems can improve the productivity and well-being that people experience in their every-day lives. My work frequently intersects human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cognitive science, and workplace studies.

Before joining UTK, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the the University of California, Irvine's Informatics Department. I earned my PhD from the University of Waterloo where I was advised by Edith Law and Edward Lank.

If you're interested in doing undergraduate or graduate human-computer interaction research at UTK, email me.

I teach in three key areas of computing: human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.
