Musician. Trumpet player. Composer


I am a UX Researcher at Facebook with 9 years of experience in research design, measurement, and data analysis. I study social attitudes and behavior, and leverage creativity to ask research questions that yield actionable insights. I thrive in multi-disciplinary contexts, as evidenced by a publication record that employs survey, neural, and geospatial methodologies. I enjoy collaborating with designers and engineers, and communicating complex ideas to technical and lay audiences. Before joining Facebook, I was an NSF postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and playing piano.
