I'm a UX engineer at Google. Before Google, I was a Ph.D. student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. My advisors were Anind Dey and Jodi Forlizzi. My research was on personal informatics tools, tools that help people understand their own behavior. My dissertation explored how contextual information can improve self-knowledge in personal informatics systems.
