I’m a UX researcher on the Commerce B2C team. I use a variety of qualitative and quantitative methodologies to help understand how we can make Facebook better for the people who use it. Before joining Facebook, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Prior to that, I completed my PhD in communication studies at the University of Texas at Austin, my MA in communication studies from Texas State University, a BS in communication studies as well as a BA in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. My academic research has focused primarily on interpersonal health communication among young adults.
