Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at the University of Southern California with eight years of industry experience, and I am interested in research topics spanning machine learning, feature engineering, and data collection methods for human behavior and experience modeling. I have a diverse background in industry working as a video game and serious game developer and as a R&D engineer on various problems in robotics, computer vision, human-computer interaction systems, and geospatial visualization.
Currently, I am primarily involved with the TILES project, which aims to find connections between physiologic, environmental, and contextual factors, and the self-reports of mental states produced daily by professionals in and outside of the workplace. I also work on computational methods and tools for improving the accuracy of ground truth representations of human experiences gathered from continuous real-time annotations. To support this effort, I designed and took a lead role in building the Experience Lab at USC with the help of many graduate students!
