My work integrates aspects of design and computational social science to model and understand cooperative systems. I focus on new challenges and oppurtunities that emerge from a digital society, particularly in the domains of artificial intelligence and social media.
In particular, I believe that humans and machines are locked in a feedback loop of interaction on the web. Algorithmic decision-making affects human behavior, and in turn human behavior affects algorithmic decision-making. I am interested in exploring this interplay, especially in applied forms such as curbing algorithmic bias, reducing the proliferation of misinformation, and exploring new forms of social mediation.
- Scissors Congruence
A web app that visualizes the famous algorithm in an intuitive and friendly way.
- Big Mouth Billy Bass
Made with Processing, Arduino, and fresh pacific Tilapia.
For a hackathon, we built an application that finds shortest path between Wikipedia articles.
- The Mediasphere
I synthesized live music, avant garde animation and other media into an experimental digital media project in the Pomona planetarium . Watch a recording here or read the full manuscript here.
- Snakes on a Hyperplane
Multiplayer 3D Snake game
