I'm a quantitative user experience researcher at Google, working on YouTube Ads. I received a PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research helps support algorithmic transparency, privacy protections, and user trust as technology becomes ever more present in daily life. I was advised by Prof. Yang Wang.
I enjoy building things. I've built for the web, mobile, and VR. During my PhD, I did research internships at Facebook, Airbnb, and Figure Eight (f.k.a. CrowdFlower). I used to compete in web development competitions and once co-organized a civic hackathon. I enjoy running, traveling, sci-fi movies and books, and (almost) all kinds of games.
My published works are novel systems, frameworks, and models around topics of user privacy, data ethics, trust, and accessibility. My work has been published at CHI, WWW, UbiComp, SOUPS, and PETS.
Patents and patent applications have been created for some of the things I built in graduate school and internships:
