Hello and welcome to my website!

As of August 2014, I have joined the Technical Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

I'm a recent graduate of the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While there, my research focused on Human Factors within transportation safety. Specifically, I was interested in how feedback can alter teenage drivers' performance while driving distracted.
