Participates in 1 Session
I am an assistant professor of Computer Science and an Asaro-Biggar ('92) Family Fellow in Data Science at the University of Rochester where I lead the Rochester Human-Computer Interaction (ROC HCI) Group. I received my PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2013.


I study human behavior through a computational lens to generate new insights and theories about human behavior that are "written nowhere, known by none, and understood by all." A particular focus of my research is developing emotionally aware virtual assistants that can improve our soft skills. My PhD thesis yielded the first scientific evidence that it is possible for humans to improve their face-to-face interpersonal skills through a virtual assistant. The project was highlighted by MIT Museum as one of the most unconventional inventions at MIT.
