I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara where I am advised by Elizabeth Belding. I am interested in research that seeks resource efficient and culturally considerate connectivity solutions to developing rural areas. In particular, I am interested in how these solutions can be best implemented to support sustainable technological integration, education, and healthcare.
I am also a member of the Open Data Kit research team at the University of Washington. My ODK work focuses on creating a communication management tool that can be used with existing Android data collection tools.
