Helena Vasconcelos


Helena Vasconcelos is an undergraduate from South Florida and Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. She is interested in how humans interact with artificial agents. She is advised by Michael Bernstein in Stanford's Computer Science Department, Tobias Gerstenberg in Stanford's Psychology Department, and Ranjay Krishna in University of Washington's Computer Science Department. Her current research looks at how explanations affect human overreliance on agents in a collaborative setting. She worked on this research during a one-and-a-half yearlong gap-year and is excited to be a Microsoft Research Intern for the summer of 2022. Outside of research, Helena is part of the club equestrian team and enjoys reading, writing poetry, and being in the outdoors.
