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.

New book to appear in 2015:
"From Distributed Cognition to Collective Intelligence", published by Oxford University Press.

Upcoming meetings in 2016:

CSCW, San Francisco, CA, USA, February 27 - March 2.

CHI, San Jose, CA, USA, May 7 - 12.

ICHI, Chicago, IL, USA, October.
