I am a first year Ph.D. student who recently joined the Landry Lab after completing a Master’s in Human Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech. My research interests focus on the interactions and relationships between humans and autonomous systems. Specifically, I am interested in improving human exploratory capabilities through collaborative computing. I worked with FAA on a PEGASUS fellowship.
