I am a Research Scientist at the Institute of Cognitive Science at CU, Boulder. I work with Dr. Tamara Sumner who leads the Sumner Lab (earlier known as Digital Learning Sciences).

I have a Dual PhD in Computer Science and Cognitive Science.

My research interests lie in the area of Human Centered Computing, Learning Sciences, and Maker Technologies. For my thesis, I looked at ways by which we can use Augmented Reality as a scaffold to help enhance 3D modeling and printing skills of novices as a means to enhance their spatial thinking abilities.

I am the Lab Manager for Sumner Lab. Previously, I was a core member of the Graduate Social Committee for the Computer Science Department at CU, Boulder, and served on the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) Graduate Student Advisory Board (GSAB) representing the Computer Science department. In my spare time, I like gardening and exploring new places.
