Apple Watch. Conceptualizated, prototyped, designed and refined sensing + machine learning algorithms, and engineered the feature into production.
I lead the Sensing Technologies research and engineering Group at Apple AI/ML. Our mission is to imagine and build technologies that make a profound impact on millions of people through research and development in sensing and AI. Applications of our work currently include natural and assistive interactions, health technologies, and context-driven systems.
I completed my Ph.D. and M.S. in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Michigan. Prior to Apple, I was a Google Ph.D. Fellow, a recipient of the Fast Company Innovation by Design Award, a Disney Imagineer, and a recipient of eight Best Paper Awards and Nominations at premier venues in human-computer interaction. I'm also an Affiliate Faculty at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science.
