I am a social scientist on the User Experience Research team at Facebook. I completed my Ph.D. in Communication at the Rutgers School of Communication and Information. My research applies a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods to understand individual and community level engagement, social support, and health and well-being issues across mediated contexts. I have conducted work in partnership with Cornell Tech, the Homeland Security Center of Excellence, and the Partnership for Drug-Free New Jersey. My work has been published in outlets such as CSCW, ICWSM, and Information, Communication and Society.
