Greetings! Let me tell you a bit about what I do.

As a human-computer interaction researcher, I think a lot about how humans use technology. These days, I am particularly interested in how creative writers engage with writing support tools and how such tools can be designed to better support creative writers.

In the past, my research focused on creativity support tools for novice makers in makerspaces. I explored multi-perspective video interfaces to support 3D assembly tasks, and instrumented a makerspace to increase the situation awareness of novices in the space.

Since Fall 2020, I have been a PhD student in the Computer Science department at the University of Toronto, supervised by Dr. Daniel Wigdor. In 2020, I also completed my MSc in Computer Science at the University of Calgary, supervised by Dr. Ehud Sharlin and Dr. Anthony Tang. I received my BSc in Computer Science from the University of Calgary in 2017, during which I dabbled in human-robot interaction research. Before entering the world of computer science, I studied journalism and embarked on a brief and morbid career editing obituaries.
