In addition to the poster, Matt also had his work accepted into the Doctoral Colloquium. Congratulations and keep up the good work!
After five wonderful years at the University of Maryland, I have decided to (re)join the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering as an Associate Professor. This was not an easy decision. I feel extremely fortunate to have started my faculty career at UMD. I felt great support from the CS department to pursue high-risk, cross-disciplinary projects, benefited greatly from the advice and mentorship of senior faculty, and enjoyed many collaborations. The HCIL--which was a tremendous draw for me originally--provided a wonderfully creative space and supportive colleagues across disciplines to grow and foster my research agenda and students. I will look back at this time fondly.
