PhD Candidate in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
(she/her)

Hi! I'm a 4th year Ph.D. candidate in the HCI Lab at the University of Waterloo, advised by Dr. Edith Law. I'm trained in both computational cognitive science and human-machine interaction. My work has ranged from EEG studies on speech perception with cochlear implants to social robots as educational tools. My current research involves designing interactions of conversational agents, from chatbots to physically-embodied robots, that promote social/emotional experiences.

I hold an M.Sc. in Human-Machine Communication, from the University of Groningen, advised by Dr. Marieke van Vugt and Dr. Deniz Ba┼čkent, and a B.Sc. in Cognitive Systems, from the University of British Columbia.
