My primary research interest is in the field of human-computer interaction with a focus on empowering people to better understand their health by providing simplified applications for personal data tracking and self-experimentation. During my master's degree, I worked on developing educational technology to be used to improve the classroom experience for both students and lecturers.

I began TAing as an undergrad at the University of Waterloo working for the Instructional Support Group on a co-op term. I continued there part-time throughout the rest of my undergraduate degree. Now I'm TAing at UBC as a regular graduate student teaching assistant. In June 2013, I completed the Instructional Skills Workshop at the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology.
