My research combines the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with Software Engineering (SE). My approach is fundamentally human-centered, with an emphasis on exploring technologies that support practitioners who have domain-specific expertise but special information needs, including software engineers, designers, and domain experts. While I am passionate about new technologies, understanding and realizing the ability of these technologies in satisfying the user’s needs and adapting to the user’s existing mental, behavioral, and social characteristics is most attractive to me.
