Michelle Levine 

I am currently an Associate Research Scientist with the Speech Lab at Columbia University. I am also on the faculty of IGERT From Data to Solutions. From 2010-2014, I was a Term Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Barnard College.

I received my Sc.B. in Psychology and Computer Science from Duke University in 2000. I then received my M.S.W. in Advanced Clinical Practice from Columbia University in 2002 and my Ph.D. in Psychology from the New School for Social Resarch in 2010. During graduate school, I worked at ATT Laboratories in the IP & Voice Services and Human Factors Departments, where I received a patent for a multimodal (speech and gesture) interface to search cable television programming.

My research focuses on linguistic and nonlinguistc aspects of communication in human-human and human-computer interaction. My work draws upon theories and methodologies from cognitive psychology, linguistics, and computer science.
