I am a post-doc researcher working with the Socio-Digital Systems group, part of the Computer-Mediated Living research area at Microsoft Research, Cambridge.

My research areas include human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported collaborative work (CSCW), and ubiquitous computing. Within these areas, my interests primarily concern how computing plays a role during personally important, life-changing events. My past research has focused on one of the biggest - the loss of a loved one. My current work is expanding to look at other big life events in order to understand how to develop systems that support human values like memory and social connection. I am also interested in how health technologies play a role during these life events.
