I am a 5th year PhD Candidate in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC), co-supervised by Dr. Joanna McGrenere and Dr. Thomas Fritz (University of Zürich). I work at the eDAPT Lab and collaborate with the HASEL Lab at the University of Zürich. I completed my BSc in Computer Science from UBC. My previous undergraduate research involved characterizing asynchronous collaboration in VR.
My PhD research focuses on designing digital tools and interventions to holistically support knowledge workers, jointly considering both their productivity and well-being. I draw inspiration from concepts and skills from empirically-validated psychotherapies, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy. I believe that taking a human-centric, holistic perspective to work is critical for a more inclusive, healthier, and happier future of work.
