My current research interest is in using technology to make the legal system more accessible. Most people find the legal system be to confusing and difficult to use. With now omnipresent computer systems like smartphones and tablets, it is the perfect time to apply technology to make legal processes simpler and easier.
I previously worked with Prof. Luis von Ahn to develop online games that produce useful computation as a side effect. 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.
