Welcome! I am a former video game developer, serious games, and various robotics/computer vision/UI/systems R&D engineer turned academic. I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California with eight years of industry experience, and am interested in research topics spanning machine learning, feature engineering, and data collection methods for behavior and experience modeling.
Currently, I am very involved with the TILES project aiming to find connections between physiologic, environmental and behavioral human contexts and self-reports of mental state in and outside of the workplace. I have also been working on methods and tools for improving the collection of continuous real-time human annotations (like how engaged students appear while watching videos, or how fun a video game is as its being played). To support this effort, I built the Experience Lab at USC with the help of many students!
