I’m a fifth year Ph.D. student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute
(HCII) at Carnegie Mellon University. I am advised by Prof. Bob Kraut
and Prof. Haiyi Zhu
My goals are to understand the experiences and challenges of marginalized populations and design novel technologies that address their needs. I often use mixed research methods in my works, including interviews, ethnography, content analysis, surveys, and large scale data analysis. My dissertation research facilitates social support exchange among marginalized populations (e.g., cancer patients, people with mental health issues, and gig workers) in online communities.
I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in the Department of Information Science at Cornell University, where I was advised by Prof. Sue Fussell.
