I'm a dean's list junior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's college of Engineering, working towards my B.S. in Computer Science, with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction.

My interests include visual arts, local history, politics, HCI, and Free/Open Source Software.

Programming + HCI

You can find the source code for my coding projects online. Personal projects go on GitLab and school projects wind up on the ol' GitHub.

As of the summer of 2019, I am working as a research intern for Dr. Kurt Luther at Virginia Tech's Crowd Intelligence Lab. I am helping Jacob Thebault-Spieker on developing Pairwise, a tool for reducing political bias in crowdsourced online content moderation.

Animation

Some people know me by my series of Scratch animations, Astro The Stickman. I made these between the ages of 11 and 13, and most of them are still available to view online.

My animations were featured in A Monkey and a Stick Figure: Stories of Remixing and Social Creativity, a presentation by Andrés Monroy-Hernández and Frances Yun, for the 2012 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work.
