About Me

22-Straight Years a Student
HCDE PhD Student

I'm a sixth/end year PhD student at the University of Washington in the Human-Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) department. I work with my advisors Kate Starbird and Sean Munson exploring the use of tracking technology (e.g., Catapult, WHOOP, Fitbit, etc.) and data in college athletics. In the 2020-2021 academic year I wrote and defended my dissertation proposal. I plan to finish my PhD in the 2021-2022 academic year and so I will be applying for academic and industry jobs this year!

In May 2016, I graduated from UMass Amherst with a BS in Computer Science from the College of Information and Computer Science (CICS).

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.

Non-Academic, Non-Rowing Hobbies
November Project

November Project is a fitness movement in 52 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.

Guitar

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.
