Kim Brink investigated how we reason about the minds of others and, in particular, "technological minds" - socially interactive devices (e.g., computers, smart phones, virtual agents, and social robots) that behave as if they can think, make decisions, and even feel.

Currently, she uses predictive analytics, data science, machine learning, and quasi-experimental design to investigate recruiting tools and strategies at Facebook.
