connecting the dots
I am a graduate student working with Philip Guo in the Design Lab at UC San Diego to envision and build systems to help people design and program effectively, at scale.
Here is a quick overview of (the different areas of) my work:
- Codemotion: reimagining interactions with programming tutorial screencasts to make them easier to find, navigate and practice with, by extracting source code edits from videos.
- Making error messages great (someday): augmenting the coding-debugging workflow with learning aids when a programmer is stuck and needs help – among the ways is adapting ELIZA (a chatbot that mimics a psychotherapist) to aid self-reflection.
- An idea currently in my buffer but one that I’d like the oppotunity to explore: enabling user testing with front-end-only prototypes, by helping a facilitator imitate (Wizard-of-Oz, or WOz) backend logic in real time.
