cropped-tgm-avatar-512-slack.jpegI am a graduate student at Virginia Tech and I am excited to be pursuing my interests in Human-Computer Interaction and Design with my advisor Deborah Tatar.

I am interested in opportunities to leverage my experience in qualitative research, rapid prototyping, and development as well as my interest in Human-Computer Interaction, specifically users’ sense of agency, connectedness, intimacy, and privacy, to design, prototype, and experiment with new ways of interacting with our technology, each other, and our world.

I want to be a professor, and as such am interested in research, pedagogy, and research about pedagogy. Here at VT, I am excited to be pursuing my interests in Human-Computer Interaction and Design, Computer Science and Engineering Education, and Higher Education Pedagogy.

Thanks to my undergraduate mentor Dr. Gary Bishop, I am also passionate about Enabling Technologies (or Assistive Technologies; basically, I want to help people with diffabilities).

I am from Charlotte, NC. I graduated with a BS in CS from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2007.
