I am a 4th year computer engineering student at UC San Diego, currently applying to PhD programs. My research interests are in human-computer interaction, creativity support tools, and online learning environments. I have worked on undergrad research projects with Philip Guo, Scott Klemmer, Ailie Fraser, and Mira Dontcheva; see publications below.
