Hi! I am a Technology and Social Behavior PhD student in the Inclusive Technology Lab at Northwestern University, where I am currently working on assistive/adaptive technology research and investigating multimodal interfaces to support communication and collaboration. My research is advised by Dr. Anne Marie Piper.
My process includes a lot of qualitative methods, human-centered design practices, and rapid prototyping. In every assistive/adaptive technology project, I make sure to frequently collaborate with disabled individuals via interviews, codesign, and prototype feedback sessions. These encounters inform the interfaces that we create, whether they be high-tech or low-tech, for practical or expressive purposes, personal or social, or any combination of the above. :-)

At the moment my research projects at Northwestern University are just getting started; I plan to include public updates on this website at a later time in the 2016-17 school year. Included below are snapshots of some projects from my time as an undergraduate student at Olin College of Engineering (class of 2016), where I pursued a self-designed engineering major with coursework in computer science, human-centered design, and psychology.
