I am a sixth year PhD student in the CIS department at Temple University.  I earned my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Messiah College in 2010, and my master’s degree in Software Engineering from Penn State in 2015.  Before returning to school full-time, I worked in industry as a software development consultant, and as a software engineer for Lockheed Martin.

I am a mobile systems researcher with interests in testing, usability, and privacy of augmented reality; and smart health systems.  I have inter-disciplinary projects in applied mobile and IoT solutions to assist older adults suffering from cognitive decline, and in expanding and improving educational practices for undergraduates and under-served communities in computer science.

Research Interests

Developing secure AI systems (testing, usability, privacy, ethics)
