As a UX Researcher pursuing a PhD in Informatics from Pennsylvania State University, I bring a wealth of knowledge in the area of human-computer interaction and human behavioral dynamics. My extensive background in both AI and HCI research has given me a well-rounded understanding of both the technical aspects of AI and the principles of design. My active participation in various projects across different labs at Penn State, exploring subjects such as AI biases, crisis response, adaptive learning, and community evaluation, has further honed my ability to think critically and work collaboratively in order to find impactful solutions through research. My PhD is supervised by Dr. Mary Beth Rosson. I am a part of the Innovation and Collaboration Lab led by Dr. Jack M. Carroll and Mary Beth Rosson. My primary research focus is to leverage data-driven approaches rooted in educational psychology to design cutting-edge tools that improve the online learning experience.

I am currently on the job market!
