I am a Ph.D. Student at Northeastern in Personal Health Informatics, a program in both the Khoury College of Computer Science and the Bouvé College of Health Sciences. I completed a B.A. in Health and Society (Individual Designed Major) from Wellesley College. I began computer science coursework in my last year at Wellesley College and joined the Human Computer Interaction Laboratory at Wellesley after graduation.
My research is in the fields of Public Health, Human-Computer Interactio (HCI), and in Personal Health Informatics. I work with Dr. Andrea Parker in the Wellness Technology Lab. I am broadly interested in social determinants of sexual health and mental health, stigmatization of disease, global health and community development, and health activism. I am exploring how social media data can be used in identifying and addressing health disparities in sexual and mental health.
