I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am advised by Jessica Hodgins and Sara Kiesler.
I am interested in manipulating real-time dyadic interactions to produce behavioral changes. I currently work with avatar mediated communication. I hope to one day apply these techniques in therapy.
In the past I have worked on improving audio CAPTCHAs so that they are easier for humans and harder for computers to pass. The new audio CAPTCHAs have the added benefit that they transcribe difficult audio as users solve them, i.e. the audio reCAPTCHA. Check out my paper regarding my analysis of the security of three popular CAPTCHAs. You can read about the audio reCAPTCHA here!
