Research Interests

I co-direct the Delta Lab with Matt Easterday and Liz Gerber, and direct the Design, Technology, and Research (DTR) program at Northwestern. My research bridges the fields of Social & Crowd Computing, Human-Computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence, and Decision Science. 

The goal of my work is to advance our ability to design, build, and study computational ecosystems. I am interested in the construction of self-supporting ecosystems that interweave community process, social structures, and intelligent systems to bring forth people and machines to collectively take small parts to overcome larger challenges. To learn more about my research, visit my website, Design, Technology, and Research, and the Delta Lab.
