I am a PhD student in Human Centered Design and Engineering at University of Washington. I research, design and build technologies that encourage positive behavior change for personal improvement and civic engagement. My advisers are Gary Hsieh and Sean Munson.
Previously I visited Microsoft Research Fuse Labs for an academic year to work on technologies that support local communities and crowdsourcing local news with Andres Monroy-Hernandez . I finished my Master in Computer Science with a focus on Human Computer Interaction at the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard, and undergraduate degree at Jacobs University Bremen, in Germany.
