I am a Ph.D. candidate in human-centered computing at Georgia Tech under the advisement of Amy Bruckman and Neha Kumar. I am a member of the ELC Lab and TanDem Lab. Motivated by a social computing perspective in a human-computer interaction & development (HCID) 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.
