Thoughtful risk-taking

At the moment, I'm a student of the Computational Design program at Carnegie Mellon University.

A number of years ago, I was pursuing a PhD in Informatics at the University of California, Irvine.  Before leaving the program, I produced a dance curation of human movement in a shared, co-local space to study social interaction and the construction of meaning in gestures; for my studies, I received the Fischer Memorial Fellowship for outstanding doctoral research.  Prior to entering the PhD program, I completed my master's degree at UC Irvine; for my master's thesis, I took a dance-theoretical approach to human-computer interaction as a means to study physical qualities of experience design. 

At the University of Rochester, I designed an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental BA degree in Artistic and Mathematical Space.  I studied the the mathematics of origami and produced two gallery installations featuring original origami works.  For my accomplishments, I was given Interdepartmental Honors from the Department of Mathematics and Excellence in Studio Production Research from the Department of Art and Art History.  Additionally, I was awarded the University of Rochester Take-Five Scholarship, which gave me the incredible opportunity to study mathematical music (post tonal music theory and serialism) at the Eastman School for a tuition-free "fifth" year.

I enjoy working with people who have as much enthusiasm as I do about interdisciplinary research for design.
