I’m a mixed-methods user researcher and strategist who works with organizations to develop research-informed products and services. I believe that research should drive products that are inclusive, accessible, and engaging.
I’ve worked with startups, non-profits, and large companies to identify research needs and uncover unique insights about their products to create imaginative and effective user experiences.
Before I became a user researcher, I designed and implemented public health research initiatives focused on reproductive health and infectious disease. My experience working within different communities fuels my passion to develop impactful tools that meet people where they are.
I studied philosophy as an undergrad at Johns Hopkins University, with a particular focus on epistemology (theories of knowledge), cognitive and behavioral science, and ethics. Later, I received my Masters of Public Health in Geographic Information Science from the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy. As a trained spatial epidemiologist, I enjoy studying the relationship between people and space, place, and time.
When I’m not obsessing over research, you can find me improving my coding skills, gardening, and dreaming the biggest dreams with as many people as I can.
