Edith Law is a first-year CRCS postdoctoral fellow. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2012 with a Ph.D. in Machine Learning, where she worked with Luis von Ahn and Tom Mitchell on designing human computation systems that harness the joint efforts of machines and humans. She is a Microsoft Graduate Research Fellow from 2009-2011, co-organized the Human Computation Workshop (HCOMP) Series at KDD and AAAI from 2009 to 2012, and co-authored the book “Human Computation” published in the Morgan & Claypool Synthesis Lectures on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Her research on games with a purpose and large-scale collaborative planning has received best paper honorable mentions in CHI 2009 and 2011. Her current research focus is on designing human computation systems that scientists can use to engage the crowd to help answer specific research questions.
