Carnegie Mellon University
I am a Ph.D. student with the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I am currently advised by Dr. Louis-Philippe Morency as part of The MultiComp Lab in the Language Technologies Institute.
I was previously a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at North Carolina State University, co-advised by Dr. Kristy Boyer and Dr. James Lester, where I was a member of the The LearnDialogue Group and The Intellimedia Group, housed within the Center for Educational Informatics.
I received the B.S. degree in Computer Science and the B.S. degree in Mathematics from North Carolina State University in 2015, with minor specializations in Cognitive Science and Physics.
I earned an Outstanding Paper Award at the Twenty-Fourth International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization (UMAP 2016) and an Exemplary Paper Award at the Ninth International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM 2016). I also received the Best Paper Award at the Twenty-Third International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization (UMAP 2015).
Working under a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship, my research interests include user modeling, affective computing, and multimodal behavior analysis, particularly within the context of healthcare and learning technologies.
