Hi! I'm Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. I'm coadvised by James Fogarty and Sean Munson.
I study the design of personal informatics and self-tracking tools to integrate into people's everyday lives. In doing so, I both study people's ongoing practices with commercial tools and design and implement new technology. I focus on building tools which support people's personal goals, emphasizing mindfulness and awareness over prescription or persuasion.
When I'm not doing research, I try to spend time outside by hiking or running. I collect turtle figurines, and am the proud caretaker of a red-eared slider named Donatello.
