About Me

I am a third-year Computer Science PhD student at UC San Diego. I work in the Design Lab on research in Human-Computer Interaction, advised by Scott Klemmer.

I completed my Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto with a Specialist in Math & Computer Science and a Major in Music.

I love music (playing, singing, listening, writing), photography, and pretty much anything involving being outdoors.
