About

Trans-disciplinary designer, developer, artist, and researcher investigating 3 dimensional space and its ability to enable human endeavors and promote socially responsible and ecologically sound systems of the future. This takes the form of Augmented (Mixed) Reality design and development primarily for the Microsoft HoloLens, primarily in the space of Healthcare.

Bachelor's degree in Speculative Design (emphasis in computing) from UC San Diego. Speculative design is a field which considers social, political, and technological systems of the future - creating designs, critical designs, and design fictions around those systems to promote positive change and avoid negative change. It covers a range of topics including Urban Planning, Artificial Intelligence, Computing and the Arts, Architecture, and more. In addition to Speculative Design, I studied a number of other fields, with particular weight given to Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, American Sign Language, Biology, Studio Art, and Physics.

Currently working as a Human Centered Designer-Developer in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at UC San Diego, using Augmented Reality to aid physicians in Sepsis prediction and treatment with Dr. Shamim Nemati and Supreeth Shashikumar. Previous work has been done through the Human-Centered and Ubiquitous Computing Lab at UC San Diego with Dr. Nadir Weibel. See resume below.
