I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science speicialized in Human-Computer Intearction at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I was advised by Dr. Karrie Karahalios, as part of the Social Spaces Group. I received my M.S. degree from Georgia Tech where I worked with Dr. Gregory Abowd and Dr. Rosa Arriaga.
My research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW), with a focus on health and wellbeing. My work understands, designs, and evaluates social and health information systems to promote diversity, advocacy, and empathy. My research group is especially passionate about impacting the lives of neurodiverse people and communities around them.
