I am an HCI researcher and PhD student at the University of Waterloo, located in Waterloo, Ontario. I am supervised by Dr. Daniel Vogel in the human-computer interaction (HCI) lab. I am interested in how we can augment our interactions with existing objects in the environment using context sensing and spatial augmented reality.

I also earned my master's at the University of Waterloo, where I evaluated the speed and accuracy of touch input at the edge of a table. This work was published at CHI 2019. During this time, I interned at North Inc. (acquired by Google) as a Software Engineer and at Autodesk Research as an HCI Researcher, where I led a research project for CHI 2020. I earned my Bachelor of Science at Mount Allison University, located in Sackville, New Brunswick. Here, I majored in computer science and minored in commerce, and even co-founded a nano-brewery, the Bagtown Brewing Company!
