I am a design strategist and emerging technologies designer who uses collaborative and inclusive design approaches to creating AI design tools and developing community-driven, social AI projects. I hold an MFA in Media Design Practices from ArtCenter College of Design and an MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. The general focus of my research is the design and user experience of artificial intelligence (AI); currently, I primarily research civic and health sectors.
In addition to design research, a varied experience in hands-on prototyping and workshops also shapes my approach to design inquiries. I believe that human-centered design and inclusivity brings focus and purpose to our research methods. Accordingly, my recent work in AI design and research has primarily been community-driven and uses AI design approaches to physical and digital products to enhance human experiences.
