Blog on a smattering of personal and research matters.

Ciao! Hola! Hello!

I'm a third year PhD student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. I bring together HCI, data science, and programming languages. I work primarily with Katharina Reinecke.

Broadly, I am interested in developing and supporting more effective research practices that allow researchers to apply basic research findings to the design of intelligent systems and vice versa.

Currently, I am collaborating with Emery Berger and Katharina to build tools that support researchers in using accurate and replicable statistics.

Collaborators: I feel super lucky to work with Katharina Reinecke; Blue Jo, an exceptional undergraduate; Nigini Oliveira; Morelle Arian; Gary Hsieh; Max Willsey; Jared Roesch; Sarah Chasins; Emery Berger; and Daniela Rosner.

Before coming to UW: I completed dual B.S. degrees in cognitive science and computer science at Vanderbilt University. For my honors thesis, I studied visual perception (Gibsonian affordances) in virtual environments with advisement from Bobby Bodenheimer and John Rieser.

Who am I?: When I am not online or dancing down the sidewalk, I can be found with a book at a local cafe (winter), sitting at a park bench with a popsicle (spring & summer), and walking around the lakes (fall). All year round, I also love observing people engaged in different creative practices (e.g., glassblowing, dance, cooking, woodworking, etc.) and using them as alternative framings for human-computer interaction.

If you happen upon the city and would like to chat, please ping or ring me! Coffee on me, of course. :)
