I'm a first year master's student at the University of Michigan. I'm interested in Mental Health through the lens of Emotion Recognition and HCI.

About Me

I graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience from the University of Michigan. After graduating, I worked at Microsoft as a software engineer, first on the Azure team and then on a Research team. I'm passionate about using technology for good, especially making improvements in the medical field. There is a lot of potential in applications of AI in the diagnosis process! However, I also believe it is important to constantly consider the implications of these developments and how they affect underrepresented groups, as well as how they benefit or harm the patient or the physician. This is why HCI is important to integrate deeply into the process, in order to build tools with these implications in mind.

My Research

I'm currently working in the CHAI lab to identify mental health outcomes using vocal biomarkers. I'm also interested in using voice to diagnose diabetes - to make these diagnoses more accessible and catch them earlier in order to get people the help they need. I will be updating this section as my research takes shape!
