Hi, I'm Justin Cranshaw. 👋

I'm co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Maestro AI, the AI project manager for developer teams.

Previously, I was a researcher at Microsoft Research, where I built intelligent systems that imagined a more meaningful and productive future of work. I was co-founder of Microsoft's Calendar.help, a human- and AI-powered virtual assistant that automated the chore of scheduling meetings.

I have a Ph.D. from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Societal Computing. My dissertation research explored intersections between human geography and computing through projects such as Livehoods, Journeys & Notes, and Curated City.

Our paper on Livehoods recently received the Test of Time Award at ICWSM. A full list of my academic publications and patents is available on Google Scholar.
