I am a Senior Lecturer and the Director of the MPS program in the Department of Information Science at Cornell University. My research and teaching interests are in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), in which I use quantitative and qualitative methods and technology design to examine how individuals and groups accomplish tasks and socialize and the roles information technology plays in these interactions. I received my PhD in Information Science in 2009 from Cornell. My Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are from the Technion – Israel Institution of Technology in Industrial Engineering and Information Management Engineering, respectively. I worked several years in the industry as an HCI expert for commercial flight-deck avionics system and command and control systems for military purposes.
