About me

I am a 3rd year PhD candidate in Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington. I am co-advised by Gary Hsieh and Katharina Reinecke. Through my work, I hope to better understand how scientists communicate their findings to the public, as well as how scientific news is disseminated, understood, and engaged with on social media.

I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a BA in psychology in May of 2017. I completed my 3rd year honours thesis working with Steve Heine and Kate Block in the Culture and Self Lab, and my 4th year honours thesis working with Ron Rensink at the Visual Cognition Lab, where I led the Correlation project from September 2016 to June 2018.
