I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science at UNC-Charlotte with a background in Urban Planning,
Architecture, and Information Technology. I am expected to graduate early summer 2020.
My work is at the intersection of
computational social science, HCI, urban studies, and design.
Most recently, I have been studying the effects of social media on our societies and lives. One of the main concerns of my research is currently battling misinformation. I design tools to help humans combat misinformation.
My work at UNC-Charlotte includes teaching the introductory computational design course at the School of Architecture. I am also a research assistant at the Charlotte Visualization Center and a teaching assistant at the CS department visual analytics course.
At the CHI 2020: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, I presented my work uncovering and evaluating the amazing designs of W.E.B Du Bois. Due to COVID-19, the conference was cancelled and presentations were done virtually.

At CUPUM 2019, I discuss a method to develop flow polylines using episodic geolocated tweet data and analyzing flows generated from Twitter in relation to urban space.
In this video, I discuss the different components of Urban Activity Explorer, a visual analytics for urban planning.
In this video, I discuss the different components of Verifi, a visual Analytics system for battling Misinformation.
In collaboration with Professor Dickey, we used computer vision to create baloons that would inflate or deflate based on users' location. We won the ARCC research incentive award!
