I'm a 3rd year PhD student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. I'm advised by Amy Zhang and part of the Social Futures Lab. My research interests are human-computer interaction and social computing.

Before coming to UW, I spent a year in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at CMU, working with Prof. Haiyi Zhu. Before that, I earned my BA at Macalester College, where I studied Sociology, Mathematics. I also worked at the GroupLens Lab at the University of Minnesota during my undergrad.
