I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, advised by Dan Weld and Mausam. My primary research interests are in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and human-computer interaction. In particular, I am interested in making crowdsourcing more broadly useful by reducing the effort required to design and deploy crowdsourcing systems.
Before coming to UW, I completed my undergraduate degree at Harvard College in 2010, and also received a Master's in oboe performance from New England Conservatory through their dual degree program with Harvard.
Oboist Jonathan Bragg received a Master of Music degree in 2011 upon completion of a dual degree program between Harvard College and New England Conservatory, where he studied with John Ferrillo, principal oboe of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. During the summers, he has been a fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center and at the Bowdoin International Music Festival. While at Tanglewood, he worked with conductors Kurt Masur, Christoph Eschenbach, and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos. He has regularly performed as principal or solo oboe with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, New England Conservatory Orchestras, New England Conservatory Bach Ensemble, Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra, and American Youth Philharmonic. As a soloist, he was named winner of the 2009 Harvard Mozart Society Orchestra Concerto Competition, resulting in a concerto performance with the orchestra, and he was a finalist in the 2004 National Symphony Orchestra Young Soloists' Competition.
