I'm an Associate Professor of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Tech College of Computing and the Acting Director of the GVU Center. From 2008-2010 I was Coordinator of Georgia Tech's Computer Science Ph.D. program. Away from Georgia Tech, I serve on Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Academic Advisory Board, and served as the Technical Program Chair for CHI 2010 in Atlanta, alongside Tom Rodden.

My research interests focus on rethinking various aspects of computing infrastructure to enable new types of experiences and, conversely, understanding how current computing infrastructures too often “show through” in the user experience. I'm exploring this theme through a number of projects, which currently include investigating the social impacts of computing (including new technological systems to empower nonprofits and the urban homeless), looking at computer networking through a human-centered lens to understand how to create networking infrastructures that better support domestic use, and exploring more usable and useful approaches to computer security. Broadly, I work at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and systems and networking technologies, but consider myself primarily an HCI person.
