I am currently a graduate research assistant at the University of Florida pursuing research in Human-Centered Computing with Dr. Jaime Ruiz as a Ph.D. student (expected 2019). Before joining UF, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from Montana State University in 2013, followed by an M.S. in Computer Science at Colorado State University in 2015.

My current research interests include harnessing technology to support e-science research and exploring gestural interaction as an input modality for mobile devices and wearables. For more information about some of my research projects, visit my research page or the Ruiz Lab website.

In November 2014, I helped found Colorado State University’s new ACM-W chapter. In addition, I participated in events for the local Women Who Code organization. I hope to continue my efforts to promote and support women in Computer Science and STEM by engaging in outreach in the future.
