I am a User Experience Researcher based in the Portland, Oregon area currently working at Intel, where my research is focused on uncovering emerging use cases of the PC in leisure, entertainment, and gaming practices.

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. I am an advocate for imagining new ways to configure life and work to prioritize wellbeing.

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

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