I am a researcher and a Jill of Many Trades, currently living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am particularly interested in how humans interact with technology, and how people interact with each other through technology.
I got my Masters in Human Computer Interaction from the School of Information at the University of Michigan in 2013. For several years after, I worked as a user experience designer on a variety of web-related projects. Most recently, I worked at Deque Systems as a user experience designer and researcher.
What I really want to be when I grow up is a full-fledged researcher. I’m currently applying to PhD programs relating to information, communication, and technology so I can have the time and space to flex my researcher muscles. My goal is to research how people interact with one another in video game communities.
Because I like video games! My favorites are the Civilization series, Katamari Damacy, World of Warcraft, and the Legend of Zelda series. I also spends lots of time reading, knitting, and doing jigsaw puzzles.
And I have two extremely photogenic cats.
