I'm a National Library of Medicine Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington Biomedical & Health Informatics Division, where I work with Professor Wanda Pratt and the iMed Research Group.
I study how social computing technology can empower people to help each other with their everyday health and wellness. I design pervasive technologies to encourage and enable new forms of social support online and offline, and I work with participants to shape both the technical systems and in-the-wild deployments.
I hold a PhD in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Tech, an MS in Human-Computer Interaction also from Georgia Tech, and a BA in Cognitive Science from Occidental College.
