I am currently a graduate student pursuing my Ph.D. in Computer Science at NC State University. Graduating Summa Cum Laude, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Appalachian State University in May 2015, along with minors in Mathematics, Russian Studies, and Russian Language.

Since Fall 2015 I have been working towards my Ph.D. at NC State under the advising of Dr. Christopher Healey in the Knowledge Discovery Lab. My research focus is in the realm of Human Computer Interaction. I am especially interested in applying Natural User Interfaces to non-traditional displays in order to solve core interaction problems plaguing emerging technologies.
