I am fascinated by sociotechnical issues that arise in everyday lives of people interacting with and within pervasive computing environments. These issues are especially salient when considering the lived realities of groups that are underrepresented or part of a social minority that may not be well understood in current research. My work explores ways to better understand the challenges, rewards, and impact of pervasive computing, through examining current and near future technological environments from a variety of social perspectives, with a focus on contexts where technology use is embedded in the fabric of everyday life.

I am a member of the Social Worlds Research Group, advised by Professor Mark Ackerman. I am also a member of the multi-disciplinary MISC and DoIIIT research collectives.
