I am a Ph.D. student studying human-centered computing at Georgia Tech under the advisement of Amy Bruckman and Neha Kumar. Motivated by a social computing perspective in a human-computer interaction for development (HCI4D) context, my research aims to inform the responsible design of information-focused interventions for sustainable development.  I am also interested in how social media supports collaborative and resistive efforts among marginal and underrepresented groups. Currently, my work explores evolving internet and social media use in Cuba.
