Hi! I'm a user experience researcher interested in leveraging technology - especially learning technologies - to connect people to economic opportunity. 

I was in a PhD program for a few years where I developed my design research chops (and worked with amazing advisors - 
Professor June Ahn and Professor Tamara Clegg), but I decided to leave early to work on more applied projects. I have an undergraduate degree in economics and a graduate degree in human-computer interaction.

Currently, I am a research fellow at Digital Promise where I help education networks develop and plan research studies. Before that I worked on technology research and design initiatives with the Council of Chief State School Officers, D.C. Public Schools, PBS Education, Prince George's County Public Schools, and Imagine Learning.
