I am a student and researcher in the computer science and engineering doctoral programme at the University of Oulu in the Center for Ubiquitous Computing.

As part of the Perception Engineering Group with Dr. Steve LaValle, my research focuses on the measurement of human perception in virtual reality, as well as interaction and embodiment in virtual robotic telepresence.

My Master’s thesis research investigated natural restorative environments in virtual reality for stress relief, mood improvement and other therapeutic applications. My background is in experimental and clinical psychology and I have a decade of experience as a neuroscience research laboratory manager.

In the summer of 2018, I was selected as a 2018 Oculus LaunchPad Fellow. Oculus Launch Pad is a program designed to support promising VR content creators from diverse backgrounds.

In the spring of 2018, I was a teaching assistant and VR cinematographer for the virtual reality class at the University of Illinois, where I expanded my portfolio of VR projects and assisted students in learning how to develop VR with Unity 3D.
