Research Interests:

My current research interest is in using technology to improve the quality and lower the cost of legal services. In particular, the potential applications of AI to the law are very interesting.

I previously worked with Prof. Luis von Ahn to create large labeled datasets for training AI algorithms, by collecting data generated as a side effect from online games. I also published research with Professors Bob Kraut and Aniket Kittur on the study of computer systems to support collaborative work. My previous work has been in parallel computing, cellular automata, and natural language processing.
