About Me

You can download my CV here

I received my BSc in Computer Science and Cognitive and Brain Sciences from Tufts University, where I focused in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. I then worked at Jibo Inc. and Cogito Corp. as a software engineer and manager.

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 Stacy Marsella and 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, data science for social good, and community development through sport.
