Justine Cassell is a full professor in the departments of Communication Studies and Computer Science at Northwestern University, the director of the ArticuLab research group, and the graduate director of the interdisciplinary Technology and Social Behavior Ph.D.

program.  Before coming to Northwestern, Cassell was a tenured associate professor at the MIT Media Lab where she directed the Gesture and Narrative Language Research Group.  In 2001, Cassell was awarded the Edgerton Faculty Achievement Award at MIT.

Cassell holds undergraduate degrees in Comparative Literature from Dartmouth and in Lettres Modernes from the Universite de Besanson (France). She holds a M.Phil in Linguistics from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) and a double Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in Linguistics and Psychology.

Cassell's research concentrates on better understanding everyday kinds of conversation and narrative as practiced by children and adults, and on building technologies that simulate, mediate, and facilitate those everyday kinds of talk.  These technologies, such as Embodied Conversational Agents, Story Listening Systems, and Online Communities, in turn allow her to study the nature of human communication with and through technology.
