    I am currently a User Experience Researcher at Google conducting generative and evaluative research on B2B smart home enterprise users.


    Previous UX Research Experience:

    I leverage data to inform insights and strategies. I am a UX researcher with 9 years of research experience in home/consumer technology and academia. Through my empathy, I aim to understand and improve the experiences of people.
    Outside of research, I enjoy attending community events, arts & crafts, and traveling. I am also an advocate of diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and STEM education.
    From UC Irvine, I hold a PhD in Education, MA in Education, and two BAs in Anthropology and Public Health. I am currently pursuing my AA in Arts at Santa Monica College.
