About Me


I recently earned my PhD at the University of Washington in the department of Human-Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE). With guidance from my advisors Kate Starbird and Sean Munson, I explored the use of tracking technology (e.g., Catapult, WHOOP, Fitbit, etc.) and data in college athletics. In August 2022 I defended my dissertation, Personal Data and Team Dynamics: Tracking Technology in U.S. College Sports.

In May 2016, I graduated from UMass Amherst with a BS in Computer Science from the College of Information and Computer Science (CICS). I also completed the Commonwealth Honors College program with an undergraduate capstone project. This project was a part of my work in the LASER Lab where I was advised by Lori A. Clarke. During my undergraduate career I also competed on the NCAA Divsion I UMass Women's Rowing Team. For details about my college rowing career, read my bio.


I have been rowing since 2008 (15 years as of 2023). I was lucky to start in high school and later compete as a Division I NCAA student-athlete for the UMass Women's Rowing Team. For details about my college rowing career, read my bio

I am also fortunate that rowing has taken me up and down the east coast, to Oklahoma City, St. Catharine's in Ontario, Henley and London in England, and Israel. By extension you could argue thatrowing has also taken me to grad school/Seattle, Mexico City, Denver, Montreal, Scotland, and Amsterdam.

I currently still row in Seattle out of LWRC in my single, Anduril, named after Aragorn's sword from the Lord of the Rings.

November Project

November Project is a FREE fitness movement in 50+ cities around the world. I co-lead our group here in Seattle. We meet at 6:29am on Wednesdays at Gas Works Park and Fridays at rotating locations around the city. Please see our Instagram @novemberprojectseattle for the latest.


I have always enjoyed singing, but singing sounds better with accompanyment. So I picked up guitar as my dissertation hobby (a hobby one picks up to balance out writing a disserration) and my pandemic hobby.

I have a floof!
