I am a second-year Ph.D student in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego working with Dr. Scott Klemmer. I am fascinated by how we as humans learn and develop expertise. I develop and evaluate tools and principles that aim to help novices develop into experts by scaffolding learning and relational thinking. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at UC Berkeley and worked in a cognitive neuroscience lab at Stanford University prior to entering graduate school. When not in burying my head in research, I enjoy playing video games, exploring the San Diego food and beer scene, and attempting to exercise. View my CV.
