I am an Assistant Professor in the Information School at the University of Washington and director of the User Empowerment Lab. Through my work in human-computer interaction and ubiquitous computing, I investigate the ways in which everyday technologies make life worse for their users and invent more respectful alternatives. My current projects focus on compulsive technology use, dark patterns, voice interfaces, and arguments online.
