About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Saarland University, advised by Prof. Ingmar Weber. I specialize in Human-Computer Interaction for Development (HCI4D).

I recently graduated with a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science. Prof. Amy Ogan and Prof. Tim Brown were my amazing advisors. We worked on building and evaluating low-cost technology to support teachers in low-resource contexts. Here is the draft of my thesis document.

I aspire to be a friendly neighborhood HCI/ICTD citizen.

Here are some selected projects:
