I am currently a PhD student at the MIT Media Lab working in the Lifelong Kindergarten group.

Before coming to the Media Lab, I received an MS in mechanical engineering with a concentration in design methodology at Stanford University. While at Stanford, I was a research assistant in the Center for Design Research under Sheri Sheppard as well as in the Transformative Learning Technologies lab led by Paulo Blikstein.

I finished my undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at MIT in 2009. My thesis advisor was Maria Yang, and my thesis title was Spatial-Visual Skills and Engineering Design.

My academic interests include design education, product design, educational technologies, and spatial thinking. I'm especially interested in how to engage children in creative design activities.
