I am a fourth-year PhD student at the Carnegie Mellon University Human-Computer Interaction Institute. I'm advised by Dr. Laura Dabbish. My research interests include social computing as well as privacy and security. My current research explores the difficulties users might have when using existing online platforms to provide peer-support through text conversations. My research aims to streamline this experience by understanding these painpoints and designing tools with psychology theory to better support these virtual exchanges.
