I use design, research, and writing to explore the relationship between technology and meaning-making.
I’m interested in multi-sensory forms of data and experiences. I
contributed essays to an Immersive Scholar guidebook
on documenting and publishing experiential scholarship while collaborating with the vMLK project. While
in quarantine, I sonified my experience
using data from a Google AIY kit. Before that, I developed
a VR experience to make the impact of fast fashion tangible
. Most recently I facilitated a
workshop on reimagining the internet as a public space.
I care about privacy. I
co-hosted an auction to help designers connect data to identity
. I recently explored
AR filters as a method for subverting biometric surveillance
I believe in helping people reclaim power over their data. I designed a
CUI that promotes transparent interactions
. I’ve collaborated with IBM technologists to explore
how machine learning can empower patients
. I’ve also
written about the importance of community-held data
Most recently I completed
my master’s thesis on multimodal IoT interactions with ecological data
at NC State College of Design.
