I'm a second year PhD student in Human-Centered Design and Engineering at University of Washington. I'm originally from Queens, New York and graduated with a B.A. in Computer Science from Pomona College.

I am a human-computer interaction (HCI) and design researcher who broadly studies the relationships between identities, (un)intentional digital traces, and sociotechnical systems. As a researcher, I employ research-through-design and participatory methods to examine the processes involved in understanding oneself through personal data. I draw from critical, feminist, and radical frameworks of technology practice and production towards understanding the values, beliefs, and meaning-making processes that underlie sociotechnical systems.

Currently, I am exploring how people construct narratives around their digital legacies in relation with their loved ones or close others, with specific attention to data co-production, shared data ritual practices, and multiple selves that emerge through- and with- digital data.
