About Me



I am a human—computer interaction researcher who has dedicated my research career to designing, building and evaluating health technologies. I apply a mix of quant- and qualitative user research methods to bring a human-centric perspective to the design and development of intelligent, AI-driven health systems.

As an NLM Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Washington, my research will explore the intersection of patient-clinician communication, clinical decision support, and natural language technologies.

I received my PhD in Human-Centered Computing at Georgia Tech, and was advised by Dr. Lauren Wilcox (primary) and Dr. Rosa Arriaga. My dissertation focused on designing and deploying intelligent mobile health technologies to help pediatric patients manage complex chronic conditions. I have published in leading conference proceedings and journals, including the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (ACM SIGCHI) and the Journal of American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA). My research is recognized with the George Family Foundation Fellowship and Georgia Tech Foley Scholars Award.

I hold a Master's in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University and a B.S. in Cognitive Science from the University of California, San Diego.
