My research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), computer-mediated communication (CMC), and educational technology.

My primary research focus is to build rich collaboration systems that offer expressive multi-modal interactions, i.e., interactions through multiple communication channels (e.g., speech, gesture, and grasp). My design approach translates natural human interactions into novel combinations of input modalities that serve as building blocks for fluid, rich, and lightweight interfaces. My evaluation approach deploys and evaluates high-fidelity systems in real world contexts (e.g., classrooms), from which we can obtain ecologically valid user data.

Recently, I am focusing on deploying RichReview, a multi-modal collaborative annotation system, to university classrooms and massive open online courses (MOOCs). My PhD study is supported in part by Kwanjeong Scholarship.
