Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences | Spelman College

After being introduced to computers and programming at a young age, my innate talent became a passion for understanding how people engaged with computing and how I could help improve that experience. As a researcher, I have gotten much joy from seeing people experience technology and innovation. Through my experience in graduate school and at Intel, I’ve learned I have the power to bring that joy to others through user experience design and rapid prototyping.

My educational background includes a BS in Computer and Information Sciences from Spelman College, a MS in Computer Science and Software Engineering from Auburn University and a Doctorate in Human-Centered Computing from Clemson University. I am actively involved in a number of STEM outreach activities always trying to expose students’ to STEM opportunities and mentor them as they embrace new computing challenges.
