Personal Homepage

I work on the intersections of psychology and computer science. For example, I\'ve
* developed computer technologies, such as pen-based computing, intended to augment human information processing;
* tested the benefits on user productivity of new user interface technologies, such as speech recognition;
* designed and trained backpropagation neural networks used in automatic bank check encoding machines to read handwritten digits; and
* developed a computational model of how visual encoding learning helps people become fluent readers. />Some Publications:
