I am an HCI researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo, located in Waterloo, Ontario. I am supervised by Dr. Daniel Vogel in the human-computer interaction (HCI) lab. My research is focused on (1) understanding how significant user interface constraints, like time or character limits, can be leveraged to encourage specific behaviours when reading and writing, and (2) designing novel interaction techniques around such constraints. However, I am interested in many other topics in HCI, including augmented reality, gestural input, and software learning. During my PhD, I have interned with Microsoft Research's EPIC group and with Meta Reality Labs Research.
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. During my master's, I interned at North Inc. (acquired by Google) and at Autodesk Research. I earned my Bachelor of Science at Mount Allison University, located in Sackville, New Brunswick, where I majored in computer science and minored in commerce. I even co-founded a nano-brewery, the Bagtown Brewing Company!
