Bio: I’m a Computer Science PhD student and NSF Graduate Fellow at the University of Chicago’s CANON Lab working with Professor Diana Franklin. I earned my M.S. from UChicago in 2020 and my B.S. from the University of Virginia in 2017, both in Computer Science. My research interests include computer science education and human-computer interaction. My doctoral research focuses on identifying disparities young children face in CS education and developing strategies to overcome such disparities. My work has been presented at the Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE), International Computing Education Conference (ICER), Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (SIGCHI), and Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing, and has also earned an honorable mention for Best Paper at CHI.
