I’m interested in understanding the nuances of intimate data and using it as a design material. Some of my past work touches on preparing digital data in preparation of death, designing for possible data management futures, and creating AR/VR applications. I’m actively searching for new collaborators to work on research projects.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading self-help books (got any recommendations? ), climbing, and obsessing over custom mkbs (I’m on Cherry MX Blues at the moment). I’m happy to answer questions or point to recommendations about grad school, admissions, and Cornell for prospective students. In particular, I welcome questions from underrepresented minorities.
