I am an Associate Professor at the University of Washington's Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering. Working primarily on 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 Kai Lukoff, Sam Kolovson, Calvin Liang, Susanne Kirchner, and Neilly Herrera Tan.

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