My research focuses on user’s trust and acceptance in human-computer interaction. With my background in Communication and Advertising, I apply social scientific theories and methods to understand user experience with new technologies such as conversational AI and recommender systems. I am interested in studying the interpersonal effects when users interact with humanlike designs.
