I am currently a UX Researcher at Samsung Electronics. I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science (CS) from the University of British Columbia (UBC), specializing in Human-Computer Interaction research. I love helping product teams learn about user's needs, preferences, and contexts, in order to inform the design of useful and usable technology for them. I also enjoy the (often messy) process of diving into data and drawing insights about users. 

I also have a special interest in mentoring and building bridges between industry and academia. I have initiated and supervised numerous industrial-academic research collaborations. I have also contributed to professional development programs at a number of organizations.
