Welcome My Research Curriculum Vita Personal Info Contact Me

Welcome to my home page! I am a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, a Research Scientist at the University of Zurich, and a Visiting Professor at the Nagoya Institute of Technology.

I do research on collective intelligence (also known as social computing), a rapidly emerging field whose goal is to enhance the problem-solving capablity of systems made up of many humans and computer-based agents. I have over 200 publications in this area, with an h-index of 37 (see Google Scholar for details).

I'm on the editorial boards for CERA, AI EDAM, JSMO and CSCW journals, a reviewer for many others, and have chaired or served on the program committees for numerous workshops and conferences on AI, agents, concurrent engineering, social computing, software engineering and computer-supported cooperative work.

I am deeply committed to having a direct impact on solving real-world problems, especially in the sustainability and participatory democracy realms.

I also have a long-standing commitment to engagement with the international research community: I've hosted many international visitors in my lab at MIT, and have done extended research visits in Japan, Hong Kong, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Switzerland, and New Zealand.
