Tessa Lau

Research Staff Member, IBM Almaden Research Center

Tessa Lau is a research staff member at IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA. Her work centers on intelligent user interfaces, a cross-disciplinary field that sits at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human-computer interaction. Her research focuses on programming by demonstration, whose goal is to enable regular end users to automate routine tasks simply by demonstrating to the computer what it should do. She recently served as Program Co-chair of IUI 2007, the international conference on intelligent user interfaces. Tessa completed her PhD at the University of Washington in 2001, spent four years at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center just north of New York City, and moved to California in late 2005 to be closer to family and friends. Outside of work, Tessa pursues a variety of interests including knitting, gardening, and flying remote-controlled model airplanes.
