I'm a user researcher who enjoys digging into people's worlds to understand their goals and needs to make technology work for them. I’m currently a graduate student at UC Berkeley School of Information, exploring interests in ethnography, design ethics, and algorithm fairness.
Since I can remember, I’ve always been interested in how people make sense of the world around us. I was naturally drawn to Psychology in college, focusing on cognitive psychology for my senior thesis project. I worked in a neuroimaging lab for a couple years after graduating, researching decision-making, memory, and perception. With a thirst for applied research, I turned to the tech industry where I researched and designed custom CRM systems for nonprofits.
I love traveling to learn about different cultures, languages, and most importantly to eat food!
