I am interested in the design and optimization of intelligent decision support systems and persuasive technologies to augment human proficiencies. My research over the last few years has focused on the development of machine learning methods that personalize the human learning process and enhance the efficiency of task completion and decision making. Currently, I am working on the analysis and design of personalized persuasive systems to improve the motivation and task performance of individuals. I am a member of the Design Analysis Technology Advancement (D.A.T.A.) Laboratory at Penn State.
