Description

I am a Researcher in the VIBE Group and also a member of the Social Computing Group at Microsoft Research, working in the area of social computing. My research focuses on building and researching social software based on psychological principles in order to facilitate online social interactions, networks, and distributed collaboration.

I received my Ph.D. in Social and Personality Psychology from the University of Washington. There I studied personality and the unique and stable patterns of emotion and behavior each person shows in response to social situations.
