Hi there! I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at James Madison University. I recently graduated in 2022 from the University of Florida with a Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing, under my advisor, Dr. Jaime Ruiz. I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Computer Science from Seattle Pacific University.

My research focuses on communicating with computers through gesture interaction and the use of expressive virtual agents. Please visit my projects page or the Ruiz Lab website for more information about these and other projects.
