PhD Student at Georgia Tech studying Human-Centered Computing with a specialization in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

My research is concerned with exploring the potential of conversational AI technology to assist older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). I'm interested in studying how different approaches to explainability and transparency in collaborative AI systems can engender trust in them in the context of older adults. I primarily engage use-inspired qualitative research methods for my research. My research interests broadly include Human-AI Interaction, Accessibility, Explainable AI and designing for older adults. I'm advised by Dr. Elizabeth Mynatt in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. I also work with Dr. Larry P. Heck in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering on a Vertically Integrated Project for designing next generation conversational AI systems in mixed-reality domains.
