New: I have a CSCW 2019 publication: “Intersecting Imaginaries: Visions of Decentralized Autonomous Systems”.

I am currently a PhD student in the Human Centered Design and Engineering department at the University of Washington. In 2018, I received my MS in Informatics from the University of California Irvine. I am originally from Seattle, WA and I went to the University of Washington for my undergraduate in Computer Engineering with a specialization in hardware.

To date, my primary research is on the developers and users of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. My research interests also include critical algorithm studies, infrastructure studies, and developer cultures.

I was a member of the TechDeC lab and the EVOKE lab at UCI. I was co-advised by Bonnie Nardi and Geof Bowker.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, video games, reading, and music.
