About


I'm a UX researcher currently working at the intersection of virtual reality and education. I have experience in both quantitative and qualitative research methods. In between running studies, I'm a Pandas data analytics enthusiast.

I also have a passion for language! I love inspiring others to write and have created writing groups within my research labs to spark this same passion with graduate students. Some highlights of my career have been my 3 first-author publications at the Intelligent Virtual Agents and Learning Analytics and Knowledge conferences. In my time away from work, I'm an active language learner and am currently studying French and Korean. Ask me about my language bucket list!

I received my PhD in Human-Centered Computing from the University of Florida in August 2020. Iā€™m proud to be the first Native woman to receive her PhD from the UF CISE department.
