About me


I’m a PhD student at the University of Washington's School of Computer Science and Engineering, working with the Information and Communication Technology and Development (ICTD) Lab and advised by Richard Anderson. I graduated from Georgia Tech's College of Computing in December 2016 and worked with the TanDEm lab, advised by Neha Kumar.

My research lies at the intersection of HCI and ICTD. Drawing on qualitative and participatory methods, I study information flows in healthcare provision and how they can be leveraged towards the design of sustainable health technologies that support care work. This work draws on feminist and assets-based perspectives on design, focusing on equity, bridging policy and ground-level perspectives, and sustainability.
