My personal goal in life is to change the world's perception of technology by raising people's expectations through areas of Interaction Design & Visualization. As a multi-disciplinary Interaction Designer, my scholastic research and professional focus is on creating systems and electronic interfaces that are both effective and efficient. I am particularly interested in improving users' experiences through data-mining and context awareness. I believe such techniques are necessary as users are asked to manage an ever increasing amount of information. Having dual majored in Computer Science and Psychology, I bring a breadth of knowledge in people and technology as well as a passion for business, design, and innovation. I am currently obtaining an M.S. in Human Computer Interaction. As an advocate of simplicity and usability I have worked on many projects over the past few years to design and develop more efficient and effective systems, including Meeting Processes & Collaboration, Contact Management, Online Health Benefit Management, Advanced RSS Aggregation, Web Browsing History, Reporting, and many others.|
