Education and Background

University of California, Santa Cruz2020B.S.magna cum laude

At UC Santa Cruz, I majored in Cognitive Science with an emphasis on human-computer interaction. I was an undergraduate research assistant in the Memory Lab and the High Level Perception Lab, where I studied how time perception is distorted in virtual reality. I’ll be joining the BAR Lab in September 2021, and I plan to continue studying virtual reality with a new focus on eye movements (especially how they relate to emotional states and cognitive load).

Research Interests

Virtual reality, head/eye movements, internal state estimation
