I am starting an Assistant Professor position at OCAD University in January 2018! I completed my PhD in October 2017 under the supervision of
Dr. Ehud Sharlin and Dr. Mario Costa Sousa . I am part of the uTouch group at the Interactions Lab , Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary.
My PhD research explored 'making' within constraints: at-risk students and developing regions where resource constraints or cultural or situational traits get in the way of hands-on creative learning. My supervisory committee consists of Dr. Lora Oehlberg and Dr. Janette Hughes. My research interests include Maker Culture, Technology for DIY, Physical Computing, Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) and more broadly Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
I also completed my Masters at the University of Calgary and was supervised by Dr. Mario Costa Sousa and Dr. Ehud Sharlin. My MSc research explored visualizations and tabletop human-robot interactions for reservoir engineering applications. I was also mentored by Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale for my information visualization project.
