I am a research associate professor at Northwestern University. My research interests are interactive performance-support systems for design, case-based and analogical reasoning, qualitative reasoning and simulation, and natural language processing. I'm currently working on developing Long-Lived Learning Software Companions for the AFOSR Robust Computational Intelligence program.
