Hi! I am a fifth year PhD candidate in the department of Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington, advised by Dr. Gary Hsieh. My research areas include human-computer interaction (HCI), conversational user interface (CUI) design, machine learning, and health informatics.
Specifically, my research focuses on (1) evaluating existing conversational systems and contributing a validated set of heuristics for conversational user interface design; and (2) designing and building conversational systems that leverage human-centered methods to facilitate the uptake of health interventions.
My work is published in venues including CHI, CUI, and IMWUT, and has received awards at top conferences in human-computer interaction, including Best Paper and Honorable Mention Awards at CHI and CUI.
