I'm a computer science researcher at Microsoft Research, broadly focused in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction and Social Computing. This means I design, build, and analyze computer systems that connect people to one another.
Over the last few years, I've been focused on building intelligent systems that explore the future of work and productivity. I co-led the team at Microsoft that developed Calendar.help, a human- and AI-powered meeting scheduling assistant. Our team partnered with Outlook to release Calendar.help as a publically available beta, enabling people to delegate their scheduling needs to our virtual assistant.
I'm also interested in social computing that leverages geospatial or physical affordances, especially in urban environments. Past projects in this area include Livehoods, Journeys & Notes, and Curated City.
