Project Scientist, Incoming Assistant Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara

I defended my dissertation at MIT's Sloan School of Management in July of this year, and am grateful and excited to join the faculty of UCSB's Technology Management Program in the fall. I study how deviance arises and makes a difference in work involving machine intelligence. I specifically focus on robotics in collaborative work.
