I am a graduate student in the Fluid Interfaces group at the MIT Media Lab working with Prof. Pattie Maes. My research interests include the impact of sensory augmentation on social interaction, communication, and empathy. I received an M.F.A. from Parsons School of Design and a dual B.S. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My work as a media artist has focused on immersive sensory experiences, which have been exhibited internationally and supported by residencies including at Fabrica Research Centre and the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD).
