I am a PhD student in the Computer Science & Engineering department at the University of Washington advised by Prof. James Fogarty. My research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I am interested in making software (especially interfaces) more flexible and extensible. I currently work on Prefab, a system for reverse engineering graphical interfaces from their pixels. Prefab let's us explore the question, what if anybody could modify any interface? In the past I've also worked on crossing-based interfaces, data analysis tools, and dual-display mobile devices.
