Currently, I am a fourth-year PhD student in computer science at Stanford University. In 2011, I received my BS in Computer Science at the University of Washington, where I discovered my interest in human-computer interaction research working on the MobileASL project with advisors Richard Ladner, Eve Riskin, and Jake Wobbrock. My research interests are in social computing and creativity on the web.
In my spare time, I love to paint and draw! I was one of the original founding members of the Graphic Novel Society at UW and served as its president from 2008 to 2011. I'm a big fan of comics and graphic novels of all kinds, and I run my own webcomic called Herogirl Comics.
