My research involves the design and evaluation of novel data-driven systems aimed at increasing algorithmic transparency, preventing privacy violations, and building trust. I'm particularly interested in studying how such systems can enable users to understand and control data practices in the age of ubiquitous computing, inferences, and automated decisions.
My work mostly lies at the intersection of Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), and machine learning, but I have also worked on authentication, accessibility, and people-nearby applications. My advisor is Prof. Yang Wang.
breaking building things. In the past, I have built applications in several platforms, such as mobile apps and virtual reality systems. I have also organized a civic hackathon and participated in many web design/development competitions. I'm currently a research intern in the Privacy & Data Use team at Facebook during the fall (2019).
When my masters allow it, I'm out for a run or a hike in beautiful Upstate New York. I love traveling and learning about different cultures. Among other things I like are sci-fi movies and books, synthwave/retrowave music, geometric abstraction, and games (tabletop, PC, and retro).
