    COGNITIVE COMPUTATIONS AND SOCIAL DYNAMICS LAB

Welcome

Our research lies at the intersection of cognitive science, AI, and human-computer interaction.
In general, we are interested in applying knowledge of the human mind to inform design of intelligent systems and interfaces.

We are interested in improving human-machine interactions in cognitive tasks such as information search, knowledge exploration, spatial reasoning, remote communication, and interactive skill learning.
We conduct empirical experiments, design intelligent interfaces, and develop computational models to characterize and predict cognition computations and how social dynamics emerge from distributed cognition.

Research


We are interested in developing and evaluating innovative technologies that improve the effectiveness of healthcare practices of professionals as well as to provide access to better services and health information for patients and the general public. Our research focuses on search and consumption of online health information, digital health interventions, and decision and communication support for physicians.

Emerging socio-computer interactions demand new methods to understand how various design features of online tools may moderate the percolation of information and gradually shape social opinions, influence social choices, and moderate collective action. We are interested in intelligent interfaces that mitigate selective exposure to information and polarization of opinions.
