I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Dynamic Graphics Project (DGP) Lab at the University of Toronto working with Tovi Grossman. Before joining DGP, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Design Lab and Creativity Lab at the University of California, San Diego working with Haijun Xia. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo where I was advised by Edith Law.

My research focuses on inventing novel interaction techniques and interfaces for AI and developing innovative educational tools. Specifically, I am passionate about developing techniques and tools that enable us to think, design, learn, and communicate in new and more powerful ways.
