I am a third-year Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley in the EECS department, advised by Björn Hartmann. In the spring, I worked at Autodesk in the UI Research group. I create and study human-computer interaction and computing education systems. I work in the Berkeley Institute of Design and the ACE Lab. In undergrad, I worked with Wendi Heinzelman and Philip Guo at the University of Rochester.

I imagine, design, create and evaluate. I strive to facilitate and deepen the means for creation; to aid others both in creating and understanding what they create. I am concerned with both the context of how makers create and exactly who gets to make. I want to invent tools which address issues in existing processes while maintaining awareness of my situated position and perspective inside this domain. Broadly, I am inspired by a shift from consumerism to creator-centric exploration and the related democratization of technology.

I was born and raised in sunny eastern Long Island, NY. I enjoy playing guitar, going for runs, and bouldering. In Rochester, my favorite diner is James Brown’s Place, which I miss dearly. I have never eaten a garbage plate. When the river wasn’t ice, I could be found in a shell on the Genesee River pushing water around. Since moving to California, I’ve been biking more actively, playing on Cal’s club ultimate frisbee team, and eating burritos at a considerable frequency.
