About Me and my jam

main photo

side photo I am the proud care taker of a 10+ year old bamboo plant.

mid photo I favor my spirit animal, the Giant Panda, in napping and eating.

I've been a Research Scientist in the Computer Science Department at North Carolina State University since Spring 2018, working under Dr. Tiffany Barnes in the Game2Learn Lab. The lab is situated within both the Center for Educational Informatics and the Digital Games Research Center. I also lead the Raleigh STARS program which aims to broaden participation in computing.

In my free time I enjoy napping, adventuring, reading tv and listening to books. I highly recommend the Libby App which lets you listen to audiobooks for free from your local public library.

other side photo I am supported by a large and nonsense family.
