I am a Computer Scientist at the Artificial Intelligence Center at SRI International.  In June 2004, I successfully defended my dissertation at Harvard and moved to San Francisco to join Charlie Ortiz' research group at SRI.

The focus of my work is on team decision making and negotiation. I'm interested in learning how people make decisions together, and how computer systems can work for and with people to make more effective group decisions. On this page, you will find information about my publications and teaching. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
