I am a third year Ph.D. Computer Science student at Virginia Tech. I work with Dr. Francis Quek in the Vislab Research group. My research area is Human-Computer Interaction. I am particularly interested in interactive hyper-drama story authoring and the effect that it has on a child's creative imagination. My other research interests include Embodied Interaction, Tangible Interaction, Multimodal Interfaces, Multimodal Interaction, CSCL, and Education. In 2007, I was the recipient a National Science Foundation PhD Fellowship Award.
Prior to attending Virginia Tech, I received my Bachelors degree in Computer Science from Norfolk State University in 2006. While at Norfolk State University, I have participated in summer internship programs at Rice University, NASA, and IBM.
On my free time, I enjoy going to church, volunteering, modern dancing, reading religious self-help and money management books, and taking weekend trips to Walmart.
