I am a Research Engineer at Adobe focusing on Human-Computer Interaction. I received my PhD in Computer Science from UC San Diego, where I worked in the Design Lab. My dissertation focused on supporting and improving peoples' creativity while they work with digital tools by harvesting existing expert content & presenting it in context.
Before joining UCSD, I completed my Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto with a Specialist in Math & Computer Science and a Major in Music.
I love music (playing, singing, listening, writing), photography, and pretty much anything involving being outdoors.
