About

I am a fifth year NSF Fellow PhD candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, and my advisors are Dr. Julie Kientz and Dr. Richard Ladner. I conduct research at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Accessibility. I am especially interested in developing Eyes-Free Exercise Technologies, such as designing accessible exergames for people who are blind or low-vision.

This year, I am happy to receive the 2015 Google PhD Fellowship in HCI!

This summer, I will be an intern at Microsoft Research at Redmond.

In Summer of 2013, I completed an internship at Hewlett Packard Laboratories in the Social Computing Research Group.

I enjoy outreach activities to engage K-12 students in Computer Science targeting women and minorities. I have been involved with the Saturday Computing Experience three years in a row, amongst other activities.
