I am a computer scientist conducting research in the areas of human-computer interaction (HCI), human-centered AI, human-AI interaction, computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), social computing, and accessibility. I am honored to have been recognized as an ACM Fellow and ACM SIGCHI Academy member for my contributions to HCI.

I am currently Director for Human-AI Interaction Research for Google DeepMind. Prior to joining Google DeepMind (previously Google Brain), I was the Director of the People + AI Research team in Google Research's Responsible AI organization. I am also an Affiliate Professor in The Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering and in The Information School at the University of Washington, where I participate in the dub research consortium. Previously, I was a Sr. Principal Researcher and Research Area Manager for Interaction, Accessibility, and Mixed Reality at Microsoft Research, where I founded the Ability research group.
