​​I’m a third year PhD student studying Human Centered Computing at the University of Florida. Go Gators! My research interests include user experience/user interaction and educational technologies. I'm particulary interested in developing technologies for underrepresented minorites in STEM education. As a lover of the arts and someone who enjoys motivating other to learn, I hope to intertwine my two loves by using dance and music to encourage students to learn. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering for North Carolina Agriculutural and Technical State University in May 2013.
