I'm a Filipino-American Computer Scientist, and a Senior Research and Engineering Manager at Apple. I lead the Sensing Technologies Group under Machine Intelligence Neural Design at AIML. Our mission is to innovate and build differentiating experiences that make a profound impact on people through research and development in sensing and on-device AI. Applications of our work include health technologies, context-driven systems, and future device interactions.
I completed my Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. 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 nine Best Paper Awards and Nominations at premier venues in human-computer interaction.I'm also an Affiliate Professor at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction Institute. This Fall (SY22-23), I'm a Co-Instructor for 05-430 - Programming User Interfaces with Dr. Alexandra Ion. I'm also giving Guest Lectures for 11-776 - On-Device Machine Learning at CMU (with Dr. Yonatan Bisk and Dr. Emma Strubell), and Debates in Design at UC-Berkeley (with Dr. Bjoern Hartmann).
