I'm a quantitative UX researcher at Google, working on YouTube ads. I earned a PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research helps support algorithmic transparency, privacy protections, and user trust as technologies become ever more present in daily life. I was advised by Prof. Yang Wang.
I enjoy building things. I've built for the web, mobile, and VR. In the past, I did research at Facebook, Airbnb, and Figure Eight (f.k.a. CrowdFlower). I also used to compete in web development competitions. I like running, traveling, sci-fi movies and books, and (almost) all kinds of games.
My published works are novel systems, frameworks, and models around topics of user privacy, data ethics, user trust, and accessibility. My work has been published at CHI, WWW, UbiComp, SOUPS, and PETS.
Patents and patent applications have been created for some of the things I built in graduate school and research internships:
