I am a Ph.D. student in the Future Interfaces Group and Smart Sensing for Humans Lab at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon. I am advised by Chris Harrison and Mayank Goel.

Prior to CMU, I graduated from Harvard College in 2014 with an S.B. degree in Engineering Sciences with a focus on Electrical Engineering/Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering. I worked at the Harvard University SEAS Active Learning Labs as a Design Specialist in Electrical Engineering, supporting courses that involved significant hands-on labs and projects to further instruction in “Design Thinking”. Most notably, I advised students in their Senior Capstone Project and was a Teaching Fellow for our biosignal processing course. Please see my “Teaching” and “Talks” pages for more information.

My research focus is on novel user interfaces and interaction, wearables, ubiquitous computing, and biological signal processing. Please see my “Projects” and “Research” pages for more information.
