I work primarily in the subfield of Narrative Intelligence (NI), bringing together my interests in AI, cognitive science, narrative, and media studies. My prior work has focused on story generation, gestural interfaces, and educational uses of interactive storytelling.
My research is supported by fellowship awards from the following programs:
I make it a priority to spend time enjoying my hobbies outside of work!
I love to run and go on long hikes in the outdoors. In 2019, I decided I wanted to share my love of fitness with others in my community. I work part-time as a Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer at the Greater Hartford YMCA and previously as a CycleStar Instructor at CycleBar West Hartford.
I absolutely love cooking, baking, and juicing in my kitchen. New recipes are always welcome, so please send them my way! I also enjoy trying new restaurants in whatever city I am in and I'm an avid Yelp Reviewer.
I am a huge animal lover. My partner and I love spoiling and spending time with our cat, Miko (adopted from Animal Rescue League of Boston in 2014), and our dog, Peanut (adopted from Connecticut Humane Society in 2019).
Let's craft something to make the world a better place.
