I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and (by courtesy) the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I run the Data Driven Design Group, where my students and I leverage data mining and machine learning to address the central challenge of creating good user experiences: tying design decisions to desired outcomes.

I received my PhD from the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University, where I worked with Scott Klemmer. I was formerly the Chief Scientist at Apropose, Inc., a data-driven design company I co-founded, which was backed by Andreessen Horowitz and New Enterprise Associates.
