I'm an HCI Researcher with a strong passion to explore the potential of technology to assist people in their daily tasks in the home. My research interests broadly include Human-AI Interaction for networked groups, Conversational AI, and Personal Health Informatics. I'm interested in studying how personalized and collaborative AI systems can support older adults in sustaining long-term care for which I primarily use evidence-based qualitative user research methods.
I'm also a Spring 2021 graduate of the MS - Human-Computer Interaction program at Georgia Tech. My masters research was focused on using Conversational Assistants to empower older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) for specific tasks such as medication management.
When I'm not working, I can be found attempting to learn more about astronomy and stargazing, doing yoga and volunteering at Atlanta animal shelters.
