CV: PDF, Resume: PDF
I'm a sixth year student in Elizabeth Mynatt's' Everyday Computing Lab. I expect to graduate in ~April 2014 and am actively seeking a research-oriented position in or near Chicago, Toronto, Boulder, Boston, Washington DC or Detroit. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
My research revolves around using technology to break barriers to human communication. I am most interested in nontraditional users and environments, in particular healthcare; I have worked with children's hospitals and the visually impaired. I am currently working with the Emory Predictive Healthcare Institute to study how health providers and their clients find, share and act on online health information. In the past, I have worked with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta on a ubiquitous computing system that Child Life Specialists and children can use collaboratively to educate and comfort children during hospital stays. My CV includes more detailed project descriptions.
