About me

I'm a second year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering working with Professors Pat Pannuto and Ryan Kastner at UCSD. My research interets lie at the intersection between Human-Computer Interaction and Embedded Systems. I design software and hardware to enable new compute capabilites on affordable, low-power embedded devices for real-world applications.

Before coming to UCSD, I received my BA in Computer Science at Northwestern University, where I worked with Josiah Hester on understanding the critical barriers between health wearable adoption for high-impact applications in low-SES communities.
