I am a researcher in the Adaptive Systems and Interaction group at Microsoft Research, Redmond. My research interests include human-computer collaboration, decision-making under uncertainty, and mechanism design with a focus on real-world applications that bring people and adaptive agents together. I am in particular interested in building collaborative systems for assisting users in mobile domains and for solving crowdsourcing tasks.
