About me

Hello! My name is Jordan, and I am an associate professor in the Computer Science Department at Smith College. I also have an affiliation with the Statistical and Data Sciences Program.

My research interests are Human-Computer Interaction and Visual Analytics, with a focus on human computation and human-computer teams. In particular, I’m curious how individual differences in personality and other features affect how people use interactive systems. I’m also interested in transdisciplinary collaboration: current projects include working with mental healthcare practitioners at the Justice Resource Institute to explore how computational tools might help provide more equitable access to services, as well with historians at Stanford to use visualization to support digital paleography on ancient Syriac manuscripts.

I live in Easthampton with my spouse and our kiddo, along with a bunch of fish, three chickens, a guinea pig, and a very sweet labrador.
