I am currently managing the IBM Research Data Science User Experience team in Cambridge (part of the IBM Cambridge Research Center). My passion for technology innovation lies at the intersections of data science and user experience. I have been leading technical teams through design, implementation, deployment and evaluation of novel technologies for group collaboration, social computing, recommender systems and information retrieval. I am driving novel technologies into the market through rapid, iterative innovation & development and direct interactions with product teams and users. I am author / co-author of more than 71 scholarly articles and 25 patents. My work has been covered in the popular press and I have given many invited talks. I frequently serve as a chair on conferences, as program committee member, reviewer or workshop organizer. I have also worked directly on customer accounts and secured several million $ in research funding for my research team over the years.
