I am a Ph.D. student in Education at the University of California, Irvine, where I am advised by Dr. Mark Warschauer. Prior to joining UCI, I completed my master’s at Harvard Graduate School of Education. My research explores the intersection of cutting-edge technologies and child development, with a focus on creating innovative solutions to support children’s learning.
My current research focuses on designing and evaluating conversational technologies to promote early learning, with a particular emphasis on language and STEM development. I am committed to creating learning experiences that are inclusive and accessible to children from diverse linguistic, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds.
I take a human-centric design approach to my work, often conducting playtests with young children and engaging in co-design with parents. I am dedicated to amplifying the voices of children and parents in technology design to improve the development of children and the well-being of families.
