I am a UX researcher on the Search and Explore team at Instagram. Right before joining Facebook, I defended my doctoral dissertation at Pennsylvania State University, where I studied mass communications focusing on telecommunications policy and media economics. At Penn State, I had the chance to really dive deep into the world of research and hone different quantitative and qualitative methods. Before that, I was studying broadcast journalism at the University of Missouri School of Journalism and interned/part timed at various TV stations in the U.S and China.
