I’m a late-stage Computational Media Ph.D. candidate in the Expressive Intelligence Studio at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I build computational systems that engage in expressive reasoning to help people frame and solve complex design problems, especially in the domains of narrative and game design. My research aims to offload the painful and tedious parts of creative work onto the computer, empowering diverse users to create expressive artifacts (particularly games and stories) that push the boundaries of human expressive potential.
Broadly speaking, my research interests include artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, interactive narrative, generative methods, computational creativity, and games. For a complete list of my publications, talks, and other academic output, see my CV.
