  • Bad AI and Beyond: Exploring How Popular Media Shape the Perceived Opportunities and Threats of AI: I am currently working with a research team to study entertainment media's role in shaping the public's perception around artificial intelligence. The project is part of Good Systems, an initiative by the University of Texas at Austin to investigate how to define, evaluate, and build a “Good System.”

  • Human-AI Teaming for Big Data Analytics to Enhance Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic: At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I worked with a research team who received a National Science Foundation RAPID/ Collaborative grant to study the process of real-time decisions that digital volunteers make when quickly converting social media data into codes for machine learning. This will allow us to better the human-machine teaming process. Here is the link that gives all the details of the grant.
