I completed 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, with a focus on health, wellbeing, and inclusion.
I investigate how socio-techical systems can be designed to promote understanding, empathy, and wellbeing among people to create an inclusive community. My current research focuses on designing virtual reality technology, robots, and web applications to foster understanding and empathy toward neurodiverse people such as autism in the workplace, therapy, and school settings. In the past, I have explored how the designs of socio-technical systems can increase empathy, sense of community, and donations towards people who cannot afford medical expenses. Please see my projects to learn more about my research.
