I am an Assistant Professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland.

My research lies at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Health Informatics. Much of my work addresses how technologies designed for health and wellbeing position and support individuals as they age.

I received my PhD from the University of Washington in the Biomedical and Health Informatics program in 2015, where I was funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and the National Library of Medicine predoctoral fellowship. After my PhD, I was a postdoctoral researcher affiliated with the Technology and Social Behavior program at Northwestern University. I completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering with a focus on signal processing at the University of California, San Diego in 2011.
