Favorite graduate school memory: A well known developmental psychologist served as a reviewer for one of my journal papers. In her "comments to the author" that I received when the paper was accepted, she signed her name in her review (reviews are usually anonymous) and said: "I commend the authors on a fantastic literature review of my domain. The authors accurately cite a broad array of the relevant literature. There were no relevant articles missing. I do not have any suggested changes because I think the literature is very good as it is. ...I was tickled by the unification of citations from people that are often perceived to be in opposing theoretical camps. ...I signed this review because I hope that the authors send me a copy when they get it published. I find the work fascinating and I would like to refer to their in my own work."

HCI issues that interest me: I want to create robots that are intelligent like how humans are intelligent.
