I lead multidisciplinary research teams that design and study technologies that help people connect and collaborate in new ways, a field called social computing. My current interests center around two areas: creating public-interest technology platforms for gig work and developing social augmented reality experiences. I'm the director of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab and an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. I'm also an associated faculty at Princeton's Center for Information Technology and Policy, a principal research scientist at Snap, and serve on the board of Crisis Text Line. I teach social computing and advise technology executives.
