I care about mental health interventions, patient engagement, and academic maker space for the public good. I aim to develop technology that can empower people to manage their health. I believe in people’s expertise (of their health, of their making skills).

I’m currently working in the alcohol and e-cigarette addiction problem space.

I build prototypes, design and conduct behavioral studies, and use qualitative methods. I also process signals, do ML and CV, and have spent a lot of hours doing neural engineering (both wet lab and scanning the human brain).

I use they/them. I share the experience of growing up with questions, inattention, and aggression. I took part in Cornell Tech’s DEI Strategic Planning Committee. If you are a Tech student or a prospective Tech student, feel free to talk to me anytime if you are concerned about anything.

I’m grateful that I get to work with and learn from these wonderful people:


Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in the Information Science department at Cornell Tech. I am advised by Dr. Tanzeem Choudhury, Dr. Qian Yang, and Dr. Alexander Adams. I work with the wonderful people in the People-Aware Computing Lab.

I also work with Niti Parikh, who founded and directs the MakerLAB.

My work is supported by the PiTech Fellowship, the DLI Fellowship, and Click Therapeutics.

I conducted M.S. study in the Biomedical and Health Informatics program of University of Washington. I had the fortune to work with the Ubicomp Lab and the Patient As Safeguard team.

I still hang out and learn from the iMed group advised by Dr. Wanda Pratt. I also learned a lot working with Dr. Edward Wang.

I completed my undergraduate education in Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science at Georgia Tech under the guidance of Dr. Hang Lu and Dr. Eric Schumacher. I also had a lot of fun and did crazy stuff as a Prototyping Instructor at the Invention Studio.
