I am a 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, am a member of the DUB group, and co-direct the UW ALACRITY Center.

I have many great collaborators, including PhD students Neilly Herrera Tan, Carla Castillo, Shengzhi Wang, Tricia Aung, Shaan Chopra, Tae Jones, Georgia Kenderova, Sam So, Claire Weizenegger, and Nichole Sams.

Alumni include Christina Chung, Daniel Epstein, Elena Agapie, Jessica Schroeder, Lucas Colusso, Arpita, Kai Lukoff, Sam Kolovson, and Calvin Liang.
