Jasmine is an interdisciplinary interaction scientist working at the intersection of interpersonal communication, novel computing interfaces, and immersive information environments. Her work focuses on how people can use technology to navigate important personal and social interaction problems, from preserving family history, culture, and language during generational transitions, to connecting with distant loved ones and emotional supporters to weather mental and bodily health challenges. The goal of her research is to develop human value-centered design strategies for such “socially embedded” computing systems, which are not only embedded into our physical world but also into our social relationships and the activities of everyday life.
