I am currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Mount Holyoke College.

My teaching practice is rooted in the belief that Computer Science education can and should prepare students to contribute actively to a more just and equitable world. As a part of this, I am invested in developing novel ways to integrate conversations about justice and equity into technical course content.

In my research, I study communicative data visualizations, with a focus on what makes visualizations “good” and research methodologies to effectively measure that goodness. I have published on topics investigating who novices are in visualization research, what impact metadata has on visualization readers, and novel methods for evaluating understanding inspired by education literature.

I got my PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I was a member of the HCI-VIS Lab, advised by Dr. Narges Mahyar.
