I'm a Research Software Design Engineer (RSDE) in Machine Teaching Group.
I'm passionate about User Experience, Design, Interactions, and User Research especially in the area of Machine Learning. I'm fascinated by HCI theories and methods as well as Information Visualization. I love to experiment with new ideas to understand how humans interact with ML systems and design and build software to solve interesting challenges that arise in bringing humans and machines together. I love that I get to learn about HCI and ML and also exercise my developer skills.
I am currently a master's student in UW's Human-Centered Design and Engineering program. Prior to joining this team, I worked in Xbox for 7 years, interned at MSR for World Wide Telescope project, and got my a BA/MS in Physics from Columbia and Harvard where I once aspired to be an experimental astrophysicist and a particle physicist.
