Welcome! I am a first-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Tufts University School of Engineering. I am jointly advised by Dr. Robert Jacob and Dr. Lenore Cowen. I am also a collaborating Research Fellow of the Scientists' Discovery Room at Harvard University SEAS and Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at Wellesley College, advised by Dr. Orit Shaer and Dr. Chia Shen.

Previous to Tufts, I received my BA May 2010 from Wellesley College. I majored in computer science with concentration in human-computer interaction, advised by Dr. Orit Shaer.

My main areas of interest are next-generation interaction techniques and UI design, with projects spanning adaptive brain-computer interaction (BCI), and tangible user interfaces. I am currently researching fNIRS-based BCI to evaluate effects on cognitive demand from adaptive interactions [1], and developing tabletop applications to faciliate collaborative learning [2].
