I'm a 5th year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University in the School of Computer Science and the Human Computer Interaction Institute. I'm advised by Dr. Niki Kittur.

My research focuses on developing new technology that enables collaboration by helping individuals and teams externalize their thinking, maintain a shared awareness of their task, and coordinate on future plans. I prototype technical systems (and interactions) and evaluate them through user and deployment studies. Additionally, I design experiments that help characterize existing user behavior, identify opportunities for technical systems, and quantify the impact of potential interventions.

In my work, I combine my technical background as a computer scientist with theory from cognitive, social, and organizational sciences to build prototypes of future collaboration and coordination systems, and study how individuals collect, process, and re-use information (sensemaking). I’m particularly interested in supporting interaction with unstructured or semi-structured collections of information, such as helping people assemble and organize bite-sized pieces of the internet (e.g. web clips and annotations) or evaluate and flag previously-compiled collections (e.g. knowledge base articles such as Wikipedia pages).

More recently, as part of AI-CARING I collaborate with Dr. Anita Woolley to study and improve collaboration and knowledge sharing within the home healthcare setting. AI CARING is a NSF-funded AI Research Institute that aims to develop the next generation of personalized collaborative AI systems that improve the quality of life and independence of aging adults living at home.

Previously, I've worked at the The Wikimedia Foundation (with a focus on Wikipedia) and Amazon, more specifically Amazon Mechanical Turk.

Alongside graduate school, I have a passion for emergency medicine and have remained an active EMS responder during my five years in Pittsburgh. I started soon after arriving in the Steel City, and worked as an EMS provider with several different ambulance services in the Pittsburgh-area, before beginning my journey as an Advanced Life Support provider as part of The Center for Emergency Medicine .

Before coming to Pittsburgh, I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a B.S. in Computer Science and previously interned at Techstars Chicago and several small web development firms.

Outside of work, I write grad school-related guides and opportunity trackers, run a suspicious amount, and volunteer at a local EMS agency.
