My work explores methods for effectively building intelligent agents and learning systems for interpersonal skills development. This involves building engaging virtual agents-based learning simulations, modeling and assessing various interpersonal skills, and building visualizations to effectively communicate feedback to learners. Previously I was a PostDoc at the USC Information Sciences Institute through a CRA Computing Innovation Fellowship.
