I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington's and a member of the DUB group. Working primarily in the domains of health and wellbeing and exposure to diverse information, I design and evaluate techniques for helping people make sense of data about themselves and the world around them.

I completed a BS in Engineering at Olin College in 2006 and my PhD at the University of Michigan's School of Information in 2012. Previously, I have been a political blogger and, while working at Boeing, designed concepts for future passenger airplane interiors.

I have many great collaborators, including PhD students Christina Chung, Daniel Epstein, Elena Agapie, Lucas Colusso, Arpita Bhattacharya, Jessica Schroeder, Kai Lukoff, and Sam Kolovson.
