My primary research interests are focused on how ubiquitous computing can enhance the dynamics of lecture settings to be more interactive. I am currently investigating how technology can support collaborative, inquiry-based note-taking. I work with Bill Griswold and Beth Simon.

I have a passion for teaching, especially computer science. I have TA'd many courses, including software engineering, data structures, and programming languages courses.

I graduated from UC Irvine in Information and Computer Science in June 2004. I enjoyed my job as a tutor at the Learning and Academic Resource Center for 8 quarters.

My family is very dear to me. I visit my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and two adorable nephews as often as possible.
