I am an Associate Professor at the University of Washington's Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering. Working primarily on challenges of health, 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.

In addition to my research and teaching, I direct the HCDE PhD program, chair the HCI+D Interdisciplinary Faculty Group, am a member of the DUB group, and am methods co-director for the UW Alacrity Center.

I have many great collaborators, including PhD students Lucas Colusso, Arpita, Kai Lukoff, Sam Kolovson, Calvin Liang, and Susanne Kirchner.

Alumni include Christina Chung, Daniel Epstein, Elena Agapie, and Jessica Schroeder.
