I am a Ph.D student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. I work under the supervision of Dr. Ronald Metoyer in the HCI-ND lab. My research interests intersect between Human Computer Interaction, Information Visualization, Machine Learning, and Recommender Systems. I currently work on research projects focused on designing and evaluating explainable Artificial Interlligence (AI) systems from a user-centric standpoint.
I came to Notre Dame after obtaining a MS degree in Computer Science from Boise State University (BSU), USA in the year 2018, where I designed interfaces and implemented algorithms centered on enhancing children's experiences when utilizing search engines. During my program at BSU, I held several leadership roles which include being the Financial officer and Vice president of the Association of Computing Machinery - Women (ACM-W) and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) respectively.
I am passionate about promoting diversity in CS and engaging in activities to teach underrepresented groups, especially females and people of color, as well as non-traditional audiences like children, about coding.
