About

I'm currently in my final semester of undergraduate studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I am double majoring in computer science and psychology. I've applied to doctoral programs to begin in the fall, and am hoping to pursue research in the field of human-computer interaction. I'm primarily interested in human-agent interaction, but am broadly excited by evaluating how technology can be used to evaluate human behaviors and improve the lives of users.
