About Me



I am a human—computer interaction researcher who has dedicated my research career to designing, building and evaluating health technologies. I apply a mix of quant- and qualitative user research methods to bring a human-centric perspective to the design and development of intelligent, AI-driven health systems. I'm interested in the domain areas of mobile health, patient-clinician communication, and clinical decision support.

My current work focuses on helping pediatric patients manage complex chronic conditions through human-centered augmentations of personal health data. I have published in leading conference proceedings and journals, including the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (ACM SIGCHI) and the Journal of American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA). My research is recognized with the George Family Foundation Fellowship and Georgia Tech Foley Scholars Award. I am advised by Dr. Lauren Wilcox (primary) and Dr. Rosa Arriaga, and I am a founding member of the Health Experience and Applications Lab.

I hold a Master's in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University and a B.S. in Cognitive Science from the University of California, San Diego.
