I am a PhD candidate at the School of Information, University of Michigan Ann Arbor. As a behavioral researcher of information systems and human-computer interaction, I design, observe, and evaluate how people perceive, use, and live with technologies such as robots, virtual reality, and social media. I am currently completing my dissertation with Dr. Lionel Robert, my advisor and the dissertation chair.
My dissertation is a series of three experimental studies that tap into how group of multiple people work with and through robots to accomplish a shared goal. I have taught courses that involve multiple disciplines ranged from social psychology, human-computer interaction, information systems, computer-mediated communication, and design.
