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

I am an Assistant Professor in the Cognitive Science Department and the Design Lab at University of California, San Diego. I am also the director of the Creativity Lab. 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.

I received my Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction from the DGP Lab at the Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto.

Join the Lab

I'm building a research lab at UCSD, and looking for 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.). More information about joining the team!
