I am a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University in the School of Medicine working on stress and wellbeing interventions in the Pervasive Wellbeing Technology Lab with Dr. Pablo E. Paredes. I also collaborate with Stanford HCI. In Spring 2021, I'll be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Delaware. I am actively recruiting undergraduate, master's, and PhD students as well as postdoctoral scholars who share my interest in designing better user experiences with technology in the areas of: sustainability, human-building interactions, wearables, personal informatics, education, health, and games. If interested, please email ( in addition to formally applying and include your CV, unofficial transcript, and a brief statement about how we might collaborate.


I received my PhD from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland in August of 2018. My research was advised by Dr. Jon E. Froehlich and I was an early student member of the Makeability Lab—a lablet of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab that focused on "Making with a Social Purpose". Here I contributed to a number of projects including the design of wearbles devices, early education technologies, and tools for DIY thermographic energy auditing which was the focus of my dissertation (see "Pervasive Thermography"). My undergraduate and prior graduate work was completed at the University at Albany in upstate New York. When not doing research, I try to: travel, hike around the west coast, and contribute to indie video game projects via The Dirigiballers, LLC.
