I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science in the Software and Societal Systems Department in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. I am also an Affiliate Professor at the Information School at the University of Washington. From 2006 until June 2022, I was a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA, USA. 

My research looks at how technology and AI can play in a role in extending the capabilities and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. My current focus is on creating an inclusive technology workplace, building tools for the future of remote work, and ensuring that those tools are created responsibly and ethically, so that we may include everyone in the workplace of tomorrow. Recently, I looked at applying HCI techniques to study and improve the software development process. I have studied biometrics and affect-based software engineering, social media for software engineering, collaborative software development, Agile methodologies, developer-centric knowledge management, flow and coordination, and K-16 and beyond programming education.
