Computational design tools should augment people's ability to create. Unfortunately, most modern design tools force people to think in certain ways, or guide people into making decisions simply because of the way the tool is built. My work centrally involves making design tools from a human-centered perspective. The person should use the tool, rather than the tool using the person.
I received my BS in Computer Science from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 2002 and joined Carnegie Mellon's Computational Design PhD program in 2005.

I'm currently in absentia from the PhD program, living in Montreal. Still hacking away, though! When I am in the US my phone number is 720-934-0491.
