I was the first full-time researcher at Instagram and am now managing the research team. I have a BSc and PhD in Computer Science specializing in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of Bath in the UK and was a post-doc at the University of Oxford. Prior to Instagram, I worked at Microsoft and Google as a user researcher and manager working on Office and Chrome respectively. My research interests evolve around mobile and pervasive technologies. I have over 20 peer-reviewed publications, including a Best Paper award at CHI; and frequently design and develop systems in this domain.
