MS/Undergrads should apply below. Working with undergrads is something that I really enjoy doing. I will do my best to accomodate as many students as my lab and bandwidth will allow. If you're interested to learn more, check out the FAQ.

Visiting researchers can send me an email. I will do my best to accomodate you with lab space and funding (if available). Dr. Koji Yatani was an excellent host to me and I enjoy being able to pay that forward.

Lab Culture and Values

In the HCI lab, I'm passionate about making the world a better place. I focus on studying, designing, and building technology that not only centers human experiences but actually puts people in the driver's seat. My lab culture follows suite by encouraging students to drive the research process. That means:

1. Self-direct your own work

2. Give and receive feedback

3. Identify and minize research risks

4. Enjoy the process, not just outcomes

5. Learn from others and share what you know

My approach to research mentorship has been heavily influenced by Dr. Haoqi Zhang and his DTR research lab. at Northwestern.
