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 the University of Texas Health Science Center. Prior to that, I completed my Ph.D. in Communication Studies at The University of Texas at Austin, my M.A. in Communication Studies from Texas State University, a B.S. in Communication Studies as well as a B.A. in Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin. My academic research has focused primarily on interpersonal health communication among young adults.
