I’m a UX researcher on the Stories team at Facebook. My research is currently focused on understanding how and why people share visual media to connect with others. Prior to joining Facebook, I was a researcher focused on K-12 and institutions of higher education, mostly around science and mathematics, and evaluated substance use prevention and treatment programs. I hold a BS in psychology and an MS in human development and family studies with an emphasis in child, adult and family services, both from Iowa State University.

Interests

Quantitative research, surveys, data visualization, education, and evaluation
