Masters @ UC, San Diego
Previously, I was a Master’s student at the department of Computer Science, University of California, San Diego, working with Professor Keith Marzullo and Professor Amin Vahdat. Words fail to express my indebtedness to both of them. Their support in times of trouble and their unwavering belief in my potential as a researcher, has always been a motive for me to live up to their expectations.
My M.S. focus was on datacenter networking and my M.S. thesis topic was "Miswirings Diagnosis, Detection and Recovery in Data Centers".
PhD @UC, Santa Cruz
Currently, I am a Computer Science PhD student at UC, Santa Cruz doing research in an interdisciplinary area of Human Commuter Interaction under supervision of Professor Katherine Isbister (main advisor), Professor Professor James Gross (co-advisor) , Professor Douglas Bonnet, and Professor Dimitris Achlioptas . My research interest focuses on improving emotion regulation via technology affordances (in particular haptics); design, implementation, and compatibility improvement of technology to facilitate intrinsic (self) and extrinsic (others) emotion regulation.
Recently, after a six-month Internship at Intel Labs, my work received substantial attention and Intel funded my project.
About 540 papers were accepted to CHI 2016, out of which 69 received the Honorable Mention award, 20 received the Best paper award, and one received the best of all, “Golden Mouse” award. To classify those 20 papers that received the best paper awards, it seems to me that, 25% of them are with regards… Continue Reading CHI16 Review

Recently I was pointed to Kokobot app (http://itskoko.com/) so I decided to give it a try today. I have the Telegram app installed on my iPhone so I quickly searched for @TheKokoBot username and right away the bot started chatting with me. Side Note: I have mixed feelings about Telegram app: Here is the news about… Continue Reading Social Emotion Regulation via Crowdsourcing
Jonathan Scratch from USC He started the talk by an example of an emotionally intelligent machine that is used for therapy of PTST patients. The machine is in form of human avatar with human voice and facial expressions while speaking. The machine does facial expression recognition, semantic analysis of what the patient says, detects affect… Continue Reading HCI seminar @Stanford -Jonathan Scratch from USC
This video is a joint talk by Professor Gross and Professor Duckworth on the topic of self-control, in particular self-control of emotions (i.e., emotion regulation). Here are a few great research questions presented at the end of this talk To what extend situational strategies in James Gross’s process model of emotion regulation ( i.e., situation… Continue Reading Emotion Regulation Model for Self-Control
