My research centers on how non-expert users (a.k.a the general public) engage with technology and ways of making the experience more intuitive. I am co-advised by Miriah Meyer and Jason Weise and currently working the NIH’s PRISMS project to help “develop health monitoring systems for measuring environmental, physiological, and behavioral factors in pediatric epidemiological studies of asthma”. I just make user interfaces for our participants :P

I’m a bit of an atypical CS student, and even more so a visualization researcher. My academic background is in math and physics with some professional R&D experience as an electro-optic engineer for spice. I came to Utah for a scientific computing PhD, but switched course to visualization in order to pursue a more collaborative and problem-driven line of research.

When I’m not on campus I like to cook, build speakers, and play synthesizers.
