I am an assistant professor in the School of Information and Library Science at Pratt Institute. I received my Ph.D. in Information Studies from Drexel University in June 2012 where I worked under the direction of Dr. Michael Atwood. I also have a M.S. in Applied and Mathematical Statistics from Rutgers University and a B.A. in Statistics from The College of New Jersey.
My teaching and research area is Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) where my primary interest is in understanding how people perceive and evaluate interactive systems and products. Specifically, I aim to investigate how system/product attributes combine with contextual factors to influence people's affective states and shape their overall experience.
