I am a first-year Cognitive Science PhD student at UC San Diego. I work in the Design Lab on research in Human-Computer Interaction, advised by Dr. Steven Dow. I am fascinated by how humans learn from rich information in the context of complex socio-technical systems. I am interested in helping people understand technologies.
I received my B.S. degree in Psychology from University of Wisconsin-Madison with Honors in the Liberal Arts and did a Master program in Information Science at Cornell University.
When I am not busy with schoolwork, I like to hang out in a sunny afternoon. I couldn't be any happier with the weather in San Diego, especially having lived in Wisconsin and upstate NY.
