A Bit About Me

I am a graduate student pursuing a degree in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Maryland, College Park. Previously, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Psychology in Canada. My research interests lie in the field of Mixed Reality and stress management. Currently, I am collaborating with Pablo Paredes on a project focused on studying stress management through haptic intervention. I am actively seeking research opportunities that specifically involve Extended Reality (XR) technologies.
