My research focuses on developing interactions between people, computers, and data. I study how people develop understanding of code and data and develop interpretable tools which enable people and computers to cooperate.
My objective is to help people develop ability and efficacy to use computing and data to develop and disseminate their perspectives about their world. I want people to see themselves not as quantified objects, but as qualified and qualifying selves.
Prior to attending UW, I spent three years as a student at MIT researching how developing apps with MIT App Inventor relates to learning computational thinking skills.
