🔍 Academic Interests

  • Interative Machine Learning

    How to design systems that improves people's agency on machine learning models? In particular, how can we design ML systems in which humans are a collaborative partner both in generating the knowledge data of interest and in using model's predictions.

  • Human-centered AI

    Understanding human-AI interaction as a language and a phenomenon: How to design meaningful interactions between humans and AI systems? How humans behave and reason when interacting with AI systems?

  • Community of practice and collaborative work with IA

    What are emergent and collective practices around AI? How to design AI systems that support and foster these practices?
