My research focuses on human-centered design and deployment of artificial intelligence systems.
I examine how people perform real-world tasks including statistical modeling, data-driven
decision making, and visual analysis. I investigate how experts develop processes to effectively and
efficiently accomplish their work. By combining automated algorithms and human expertise into
an integrated workflow, I design intelligence systems that are interpretable, trusted by users and
improve user performance and productivity.
My projects include computer-aided translation interfaces, automated text analysis tools, deep
learning algorithms, and semantic search engines. My work has appeared in top-tier publications
in human-computer interaction (CHI, TOCHI), machine learning (ICML), natural language
processing (EMNLP, NAACL), and information visualization (AVI), and has contributed to multiple
other disciplines including the social sciences and genetics research
