Sadat joined the Collaborative User Experience Group at IBM Research in the summer of 2008. His primary research areas are computer supported cooperative work, computer mediated communication, and social computing. Specifically, his interests lie in the design of theoretically informed systems that can act as effective ‘interventions’ to support knowledge workers. He enjoys developing systems that embrace the potential of emerging technologies but also have a strong grounding in socio-cognitive theories of behavior.

Sadat has a PhD in Information Science from Cornell University, where he majored in Human Computer Interaction. Prior to starting his PhD, Sadat was a research associate at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, where he developed multi-player online games to study distributed collaboration. His research has been presented at various international conferences such as CHI, CSCW, INTERACT, and HICSS.

Sadat has lived in five countries and while he does not intend to live in any more, he certainly looks forward to visiting many more. When he's not doing research, Sadat can be found jogging along the Charles River on the Cambridge side, where he also lives.
