I am a Human-Computer Interaction researcher with the Design Lab at UC San Diego where I recently graduated with my PhD in Cognitive Science. I study and develop technologies that help people document and share data-driven work. I get particularly excited when discussing Jupyter Notebooks, interruptions, information visualization, and electronic health records.
