Name: David Piorkowski

Bio: I am a Human-Computer Interaction and Software Engineering researcher currently employed at IBM’s Thomas J Watson Research Center.

My research sits at the intersection of AI, Software Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction. I currently work on understanding how AI developers and teams work, investigating the barriers that they face, and developing solutions and tools to address those needs. Specifically, I am focusing on how to support information and communication needs between stakeholders throughout the life of software projects involving AI or machine learning. Previously, I researched challenges that developers incorporating AI libraries, frameworks and services into their software projects, and on developing novel ways to measure and evaluate conversational systems.

Before IBM, I graduated with a Computer Science Ph.D. from Oregon State University, advised by Dr. Margaret Burnett.
