About Me

PhD Student at the University of Virginia

Researching digital tools for mental health and wellbeing

I earned my Master’s degree in Informatics, with a focus on Proactive Health Informatics, from Indiana University Bloomington in 2016. While at IU, I worked with Dr. Patrick Shih on how bereaved individuals use technology to cope with complicated grief.

Currently, I am working on my PhD under Dr. Laura Barnes in the UVA Systems Engineering program. We collaborate with psychologists and other mental health experts to develop technologies to support mental health and wellbeing. From wearables for detecting early indicators of disease to online interventions for social anxiety, the Barnes Lab is always busy finding new ways to engineer better health interventions.
