Hi, I'm Luke!

I am a first-year PhD student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) within the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, and am advised by Steven Wu and Ken Holstein.

My work is in human-centered machine learning. In particular, I aim to create systems that augment human abilities (human-AI complementarity), while also fostering partnerships that are transparent, fair, and aligned with stakeholder values. My research is generously supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Previously, I did my Master’s (MPhil) in Computer Science at Cambridge, where I worked under Hatice Gunes. I also studied Computer Science and Psychology at the University of Missouri, where I worked with Yi Shang and Tim Trull, and co-founded TigerAware, a mobile-based research platform.
