Human-Computer Interaction • Cognitive Science & Design Lab • University of California, San Diego

I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Cognitive Science Department and the Design Lab at University of California, San Diego. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at DGP lab, University of Toronto (soon be done!). I am also a Microsoft PhD Fellow and Adobe PhD Fellow.

My research area is Human-Computer Interaction, in which I focus on augmenting our productivity and creativity. I approach this through the development of the Human-Centered Interaction Language. Its cornerstone is the Human-Centered Representation, which directly reflects and dynamically adapts to our mental processes, as well as affords Human-Centered Articulation through which we can fluidly express our thoughts to digital devices.

Here is my plan for future research.

Join the Lab

I'm building a research lab at UCSD, which will reside in the new Design Lab building, available early 2021! I'm excited to advance the foundamentals of HCI with highly creative and collaborative students. I also have positions for interns, visiting researchers, and post-docs. The lab welcomes diverse technological backgrounds (CogSci, CS, EE, Design, etc.) and broad cultural backgrounds. Please read more about the lab and how you should apply.
