I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the GroupLens HCI research group at the University of Minnesota. I work with a great bunch of folks, chiefly Prof. Lana Yarosh.

I received my PhD in Information Science from the University of Michigan in 2017. I was privileged to be a part of SocialWorlds group, advised by Prof. Mark Ackerman, and supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I also was a member of DoIIIT Studio and MISC.

I’m also a proud graduate of UMBC and the Meyerhoff Scholars Program.

About my research:

Technologies are increasingly “pervasive”: embedded into our physical environment, social relationships, and even the ways we think and behave. How do these pervasive systems and devices influence how we live, what we value, and how we relate to others? My research seeks to understand how diverse human values are entangled in the design and use of technologies that shape our way of life. Recent projects focus on collective family memory, digital memorabilia, and health and wellness.
