I am a Research Staff Member in the USER group at IBM Research - Almaden Center. I am passionate about conducting research to inform and design technologies that will enhance people's ability to do their jobs and live their lives. My general research interests include social media, collaboration software, online communities, workplace collaboration, privacy, technology evaluation, and glanceable visualizations. In my current work, I do the following:

  • Study collaboration in the workplace and translate findings into novel tools for designers and collaboration tools for workers.
  • Evaluate workers' usage practices of various social and collaboration software tools in the workplace to highlight opportunities for innovation.
  • Software types studied/designed: community analytics, community collaboration, email, microblogging, general social & collaboration, glanceable visualizations, activity-centric collaboration, social CRM, systems management.
  • Populations studied: online community members & leaders, business workers, sales teams, designers, user experience professionals, systems administrators, people with hearing loss.
  • I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley. My major was Human-Computer Interaction. My advisor was Jennifer Mankoff. The goal of my dissertation work was to increase knowledge on how to design and evaluate glanceable peripheral displays in order to improve the user's experience and efficiency while multitasking. My thesis on Designing and Evaluating Glanceable Peripheral Displays is available. The reason for my interest in HCI and related topics is that I would like to help people by making technology more accessible and useful to them.
