My name is Danaë Metaxa-Kakavouli, and I’m a Ph.D. student studying Computer Science at Stanford University in the Human-Computer Interaction Group.

I’m broadly interested in the ways technology and humanity mix—how each affects the other, and the insights we can develop about human cognition, communication, and socialization by studying that boundary.

As of Fall 2015, I’m rotating with James Landay, and have an ongoing research project with Michael Bernstein. Recently I also interned at MetaMind.

I graduated from Brown University in 2015 with B.A. degrees in both Computer Science and Science, Technology, and Society. My advisor at Brown was Jeff Huang, fearless leader of Brown’s HCI Group.

P.S. In case you’re wondering/struggling, my first name is pronounced like the verb “deny”.
