About Me


I am a technologist (but also a sportswoman, dancer and backpacker) who recently entered the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am pursuing HCI because I believe that user-centered research and design is essential to creating meaningful technology.

As a child, I would observe my dad playing badminton and would constantly badger him with questions about the sport. I designed a training schedule, informed by his answers, which I adhered to and won many tournaments. I would also evaluate my losses and refine my training schedule to yield further improvements. My childhood approach to learning badminton is similar to my approach to HCI. I continuously seek expert and user input, iterate and improve upon designs.

I look forward to much more play in my future professional and badminton journey.
