I am a PhD candidate at Georgia Tech in Computer Science in the school of Interactive Computing. My advisor is Dr. Eric Gilbert in the comp.social lab. I'm graduation in June 2015 and looking to continue conducting research as a User Experience Research at a consumer software company.
My research and interests lie in Human-Computer Interaction and Social Computing. I have experience conducting usability testing with a range of methods from qualitative interviewing to quantitative analysis. For my dissertation, I conducted a formative exploration of relationship dynamics on social media during controversial political events. I am currently building and evaluating a tool that promotes more civil discussions online.
I have interned as a User Experience Researcher on the Gmail at Google, and as a software engineer in the Productivity (iWork) team at Apple. I obtained my B.A. in Computer Science at Wellesley College in 2009 where I was advised by Dr. Scott Anderson; and I am an alum of Wellesley's HCI lab led by Dr. Orit Shaer.
