I am a PhD student in Informatics at University of California, Irvine‘s Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences. My research lies at the intersection of computer science and social science, with a particular interest in the experience of mobile phones and social media within organizational and personal contexts. I am currently investigating the role of technology in the internship experiences of undergraduate and graduate students. I am advised by Dr. Melissa Mazmanian, and I am also a part of the STAR Group (Social and Technological Action Research) and LUCI (Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction).
