About Me

You can download my CV here

I received my BSc in Computer Science and Cognitive and Brain Sciences from Tufts University in May 2015, where I focused in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Afterwards, I spent three years as a Software Engineer and Manager at Jibo Inc. (social robotics) and Cogito Corp. (emotional AI).

I received my masters in Research Methods in Psychological Sciences from the University of Glasgow in September 2019.

Currently, I am studying for my PhD in Computer Science under the supervision of Dr. Stacy Marsella and Dr. Mary Ellen Foster at University of Glasgow. I use a combination of psychological experimental methods, machine learning, and user evaluation studies to understand the cognitive processes behind gesture. My thesis is in building a generative model for semantically meaningful social gesture for artificial agents.

Some of my other passions include scientific community engagement, STEM education, and community development through sport.
