Bio
I am an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. My research in Human-Computer Interaction focuses on novel design, prototyping, and implementation tools for the era of post-personal computing. My group investigates how better software and hardware can facilitate the exploration of interactive devices that leverage novel form factors and technologies (e.g., sensors and actuators). We also investigate how software can help students, designers, and makers to learn and share their expertise online. Methodologically, my group predominantly focuses on systems research: we contribute complex, working interactive systems that embody our research ideas and enable us to test specific hypotheses. However, I also appreciate (and we conduct) careful, controlled experiments. I am a Qualcomm Faculty Fellow and have received an NSF CAREER award, Sloan fellowship, and Okawa research award. My group predominantly publishes at the top HCI conferences UIST, CHI and CSCW. We also publish in more topic-specific venues like DIS, ICSE, VL/HCC, and Learning@Scale. Our work has received multiple best paper prizes at these conferences.
