I'm a UX Researcher and a first-year Computational Media PhD student in the Alternative Learning Technologies and Games (ALT Games) Lab at UC Santa Cruz.

I use analytical and creative methods to research HCI, player experience, games user research, extended reality (VR/AR/MR), and social collaboration.

My work builds from my interdisciplinary backgrounds in human-computer interaction and digital media studies.

I'm from the beautiful Northern Mariana Islands. Thankful to be a Gates Millennium Scholarship recipient to support my research career.
