I am currently at Autodesk in the UI Research group. I create and study human-computer interaction and computing education systems. I am a 2nd-year Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley in the EECS department, advised by Björn Hartmann. 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.

While I truly enjoy imagining and making things, I also strive to make things that help others make things, and understand what they are making. I am concerned with both the context of how makers get to make and exactly who gets to make. I want to invent tools that address issues in current processes while maintaining awareness of my situated position and perspective inside this domain. Broadly speaking, 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, running, bouldering, and home-brewing beer. In Rochester, my favorite diner was James Brown’s Place (which I miss dearly), and I never ate a garbage plate. When it wasn’t snowing, I could often be found in a shell on the Genesee River pushing water around (and, sometimes when it was snowing). Since moving to California, I’ve been biking more actively, playing on Cal’s club ultimate frisbee team, Thugmo, and eating burritos at a fairly considerable frequency (just consider).
