I am an Associate Professor in the Human-Centered Computing Department in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). My research is in Human-Computer Interaction, Intelligent User Interface Design, Aging, and Health Informatics. I design, build, and evaluate persuasive and intelligent user interfaces that support aging.  I also examine approaches that encourage and improve older adults’ engagement with technology.

I completed my Postdoctoral Training with Amy Hurst in the Department of Information Systems at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science with a focus on HCI from Clemson University in 2014 under the advisement of Juan E. Gilbert. I received an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, and a B.S. in Computer Science with an emphasis in Mathematics from Tougaloo College.

My research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Google. I received an NSF CAREER Award in 2022 and a Google Award for Inclusion in 2020.
