Welcome! I am a third-year Computer Science & Engineering PhD student at the University of Washington, studying with Jeffrey Heer from the Interactive Data Lab. Previously, I received my Master’s in Computer Science from Purdue University, working with David Ebert on predictive visual analytics of social media data. I also received my Bachelor’s in Computer Science from the University of Arkansas.

My research interests broadly include (data) visualization, visual analytics, HCI, and interactive machine learning. I am especially interested in intelligent interfaces, visualization tools, and interaction design.
