I am a PhD candidate in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Vincent Aleven. I am also a fellow of the PIER Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research
My research responds to encroaching automation across various economic sectors, with a special focus on "caring professions" such as teaching, nursing, and social work.
I work with stakeholders "on the ground" to co- design and develop effective human-AI partnerships that leverage complementary strengths (and mitigate complementary biases) of human and AI decision-makers.
In my PhD, I focus on co-designing, developing, deploying, and empirically evaluating AI systems that augment and amplify K-12 teachers' abilities, instead of trying to replace them. I explore the evolving roles of teachers as AI increasingly enters K-12 classrooms, and investigate how human and AI instruction might most effectively be combined.
