Designer, Researcher, Educator.

My work focuses on designing and studying interactive experiences that enhance cultural inclusivity and change.

I use methods from the social sciences to understand how people make sense of their experiences, and the role of ecologies and culture. I employ design thinking and human-centered design to explore new technologies and experiences. And I employ participatory design techniques, to ensure voice and empowerment are deeply integrated into the research and design process.

I am currently an Assistant Professor at Fordham University, where I teach in the Communication and Media Studies department.
