Thanks for stopping by!
Originally from New Jersey, I’ve been slowly moving up to colder and colder territories, having done my undergrad years in New York state and now grad school in Boston. I live here with my fiancé, Jake, and our two wonderful kitties, Tallulah and Eevee, who have kept us entertained with their antics throughout the pandemic!
I got my B.A. in cognitive science from Vassar College in 2018, where I had a wonderful experience dipping my toe in the “scientific research” pool for the first time while working on an evolutionary robotics project with an amazing team. I liked the robots but felt like the questions I was interested in were drawing me more towards people– I found the field of human-robot interaction and haven’t looked back! I’m now in the fifth year of my PhD in cognitive science and computer science at Tufts University studying HRI.
In my free time, I like to paint and do other crafts, read fantasy novels, go rock climbing, play board games, play Pokemon games, play tennis, and ski. Fun fact- I was captain of America’s worst collegiate ski team for two years!
