I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the GVU Center
and the School of Interactive Computing
at the Georgia Institute of Technology
. I am a member of the Human Centered Computing
Ph.D. program and am an active mobile HCI researcher.
I am a member of the Contextual Computing Group
and am conducting my thesis research under the guidance of Dr. Thad Starner
. My thesis work centers around improving mobile text input on mini-QWERTY keyboards. I also study how collocated groups of people use mobile devices to augment their face-to-face experiences. Having the opportunity to balance quantitative and methodological work with qualitative/social research is one of the things that I really love about what I do.
