Bio

My work draws on human-computer interaction, social computing and data mining techniques to investigate users’ behavior around socio-technical systems, identify "misinformed" behavior, and redesign these systems to provide users with a more informed, satisfying, and engaging interaction. Currently, I'm working on algorithmic opacity as one of the possible causes of misinformed behavior among users, and how we can mitigate it by adding transparency into opaque algorithmic socio-technical systems.
