Dan Cosley is a permanent program officer at NSF as of September 2020. Before that, I was an associate professor at Cornell in the Information Science department, doing research in the spaces of Human-Computer Interaction and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work. This includes work around user interfaces of recommender systems and modeling human information behaviors from computational traces; better-understanding crowdwork and supporting online collaboration; social media, identity, and memory; and various other topics that I helped students work on along the way.
