About Me

I recently graduated with a Ph.D. candidate from the school of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon. I specialize in Human-Computer Interaction for Development (HCI4D).

Prof. Amy Ogan and Prof. Tim Brown were my amazing advisors. We work on building and evaluating low-cost technology to support teachers in low-resource contexts.

I recently passed my thesis defense. Here is the draft of my thesis document.

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