I am a Visiting Assistant Professor the the Computer Science department at the College of William and Mary. I have broad technical interests including ubiquitous computing, mobile applications, speech processing, machine learning, and computer graphics. The goal of my research is to make more effective tools so that people's lifestyle and health can be monitored to improve medical care.

I obtained my graduate degrees (MS, PhD) at the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia where I worked with Prof. Jack Stankovic on a continuous monitoring home monitoring system called Empath. I received my B.S. in Computer Engineering at the University of Florida.
