Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a first generation college student, studying Computer Science with a minor in Design.

I live at and serve as Vice President of MacGregor House, research at the MIT Media Lab, and tour guide.

I am a researcher in the Changing Places group and think about how to realistically model complex systems and make them into tangible user interfaces, which may or may not involve Legos. Besides that, I like thinking about how to visualize data and complexities around us in effective ways.
