I am an undergraduate student at Texas A&M, seeking to double major in Computing and Philosophy. Since joining the lab in April 2016, I have worked on multiple projects — including pen+touch interaction, live media in MOOCs, and design curation in IdeaMâché and LiveMâché — particularly analyzing qualitative data.
While I have been in college, I have struggled to answer questions such as "What is your passion?" or "What are you truly interested in?". With time, I have come to realize that the world is full of phenomena, and being in the technical space with a philosophically driven mindset, there is much to be uncovered with a keen eye.
Alongside my work with the lab, to bring these two disciplines together, I am participating in Texas A&M's LAUNCH URS thesis program, for which I seek to articulate how UX/UI lends itself to redefining social virtues, using mediation theory as a framework to understand how UX/UI relates to its users and the moral implications that follow.
