Hello. My name is Adam Rule. I am a PhD student in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego where I work with Jim Hollan in the Design Lab. I study human-computer interaction, developing technologies that support complex and fragmented work. I get particularly excited about interruptions, information visualization, clinical informatics, and Jupyter Notebooks.

You can reach me at acrule@ucsd.edu.
