I am a computer scientist specializing in human-computer interaction. My research interests include end-user programming, user interface design tools, and collaboration software.

Currently, I work at Google on the user interface infrastructure for Google Search. Previously, I was a member of the User Sciences and Experience Research (USER) group at IBM Almaden Research Center.

I received a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley. My dissertation was on a prototyping tool to support the design of user interfaces for applications that run on desktop PCs and mobile devices.

I received a B.S. in Computer Science from the California Institute of Technology, popularly known as Caltech.
