Howdy! I am a Master's student working with Dr. Andruid Kerne.
I am interested in social media experiences (particular LGBT+ and marginalized experiences), curation, creativity support, and information visualization.
Before starting graduate school, I worked as an undergraduate researcher in the Interface Ecology Lab for one-and-a-half years, while completing my B.S. in Computer Science at Texas A&M.
I am preparing to defend my thesis, "Queering Social Media Spaces: LGBT+ Performances Motivate Social Media Design."
Last summer, I interned at Adobe Research. We published a Late-Breaking Work at ACM CHI 2017, "popHistory: Animated Visualization of Personal Web Browsing History."
Previous work includes improving the BigSemantics web metadata extraction framework with automatic bilbiography generation and investigating
the use of free-form, multi-scale mediums for classroom presentation.
