I have 8 years of academic and 3 years of professional experience in the research, design, and development of systems that demonstrate product innovation. Having a deep understanding of how technologies work allows me to conceptualize, engineer, and evaluate systems with real-world applications.

My professional experience was at IDEO Colab, Microsoft Research, Xerox PARC, and Telefonica Research. I led projects in collaborative environments towards creating new experiences for users. My experience as an entrepreneur helped me to gain a holistic understanding of product development.

My Ph.D. research provides design principles for building intelligent systems for behavior change. I was advised by Mark Newman and worked with Pedja Klasnja. My research unites design and engineering to create simple solutions for complex problems.
