My research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), specifically in modeling, supporting and augmenting human abilities in a multimodal context. Leveraging techniques from AI and HCI, I create novel experiences for accessibility, communication and augmented reality.
My work has been recognized and supported by an Amazon Ph.D. Fellowship🏅 (2023), an ACM UIST Best Paper Award 🏆 (2022), an ED Rice Outstanding Master Student Award 🎓 (2023), and a Distinguished Master’s Thesis Research Award 🎓 (2022) at UCLA. I also held research internships at Google and Snap Research.
