Human-Computer Interaction & Medicine


I am working at the intersection of medicine and medical applications of human-computer interaction. Specifically, I’m interested in improving the usability of electronic medical records to protect patients, enhance physician productivity, and encourage a closer doctor-patient relationship. Currently, I am attending the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and am expected to graduate in May 2020.

In August 2013, I received my Masters degree at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. There, I guided the improvement of an electronic medical product for radiologists while broadening my user-research, visual-design, and engineering skills. In addition, I designed many systems – from an augmented reality application for inquisitive kids to a platform for parking payments.

Before that, I was the Community Product Manager at BoostCTR in San Francisco, CA. There, I designed and developed workflows and improved engagement among our writers. I also worked with the account managers and engineers to create our metrics to judge community health. I’ve also developed, conducted, and analyzed large consumer preference surveys with Nielsen – BASES, and saved lives with Stratford Volunteer EMS Association, transported patients with Pacific Ambulance, and worked with a palliative care organization.
