I am a Senior User Experience Researcher based in the Portland, Oregon area, formerly working at YouTube on the intersection of digital identity, creator-fan relationships, and creator economy monetization.

I hold a PhD in Science and Technology Studies from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Masters of Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University. My dissertation research ethnographically explored how meditation apps shape cultural definitions of mental health in the digital age.

IRL, I spend my time traveling (when possible), cooking, hiking, and hanging out with a mischievous black cat named Hershey.

Online, you can find me on LinkedIn and (rarely) on Twitter.
