Research Interest

My research generally focuses on metacognition, or how to reason about existing algorithms. Specifically, I have studied metacognition algorithms that can coordinate behavior in distributed systems given limited computational resources. My research has created theoretical and practical applications for problems such as peer to peer full-text search, bounded rationality, human-computer interactions, data filtering, scheduling and constraint satisfaction and optimization, communication protocols, and scalability issues.
