Recieved an NSF CAREER Grant to advance remote collaboration through inclusive design with people with dementia.

Presented at the World Dementia Council technology roundtable.

Co-PI on an NSF-funded grant. I will lead the aim investigating activity tracking with people with dementia.

I am an Assistant Professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland. I am a member of HCIL and the TRACE center and affiliated with the Department of Computer Science. My work is supported by the NSF and NIDILRR.

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 with the Technology and Social Behavior program at Northwestern University. I completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, San Diego.
