I'm a Filipino-American Computer Scientist, and a Senior Research and Engineering Manager at Apple, where I lead the Sensing Technologies Group under Machine Learning and AI. 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 include health technologies, context-driven systems, and natural + assistive interactions.
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 and Human-Computer Interaction Institute. This school year (SY21-22), I gave guest lectures for 05333 - Gadgets, Sensors, and Activity Recognition, 05499 - Special Topics in HCI, and 05-610 - User Centered Research and Evaluation.
