I'm a PhD candidate in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University working with Kay Connelly and Katie Siek in the ProHealth group. My dissertation research is on the potential role of technology in the lives of people with rare diseases. During my PhD, I've completed internships at PARC and at Microsoft Research, and I've accepted an internship at Facebook for this coming summer.
I have a Master of Science in Human Computer Interaction (Health Emphasis) from Indiana University. I also have a Bachelor of Commerce with a minor in Computer Science from the University of Calgary in Alberta. While at the University of Calgary, I was a research assistant in the Interactions Lab, working with Tony Tang in the RICELab group.
I'm currently the Benefits Officer for the Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) at Indiana University. Previously I've contributed to the school community as the Informatics Representative on the GPSG Assembly and as the Institutional Voice Chair of the Graduate Informatics Student Association (GISA).
