I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2012 from the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. My advisors were Gregory Abowd and Rosa Arriaga, and I was a member of the Ubiquitous Computing Group. I received my BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2005, and my Masters in Computer and Information Technology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008.
My research interests lie in the area of Human Computer Interaction. For my thesis research, I explored the use of interactive software to provide social skills instruction for individuals with autism. Specifically, I used crowdsourcing techniques to facilitate the authoring of interactive software to provide individualized social problem solving skills training.
