My interests and professional experiences span many fields like game design, cognitive science, writing, and astrophysics. I enjoy learning new skills quickly and working at the interesting intersections between disciplines.
June 2019 - January 2020
I was a UX Developer and co-founding member of the Data Experiences and Visualizations Studio (DEV Studio) at Dartmouth College. Along with developing XR experiences, I am assisted with the development and launch of the new lab. I did 3D modeling, communicated with project/research partners, helped with inventory and marketing, and helped guide the direction of the lab.
April 2019 - June 2019
I was the Spring 2019 Teaching Assistant for the Game Design Studio class taught by Professor Mary Flanagan. I facilitated the students' development as game designers by advising them during the design process, playtesting their prototypes, and improving their games literacy through demonstrations.
June 2017 - April 2019
At Tiltfactor, I developed and researched video, virtual reality, and board games that promote learning, behavior change, and attitude change. While I often learn new skills quickly due to the varied nature of my responsibilities, most of my contributions to game development are designing, writing, researching, 3-D modeling, and sound editing. On the research side, I led most of the lab's research studies, including design, execution, and data collection. I also exhibited and promoted Tiltfactor games at conventions like PAX East, with a knack for teaching and explaining the appeal of the game to newcomers quickly.
January 2019 - March 2019
I managed the Dartmouth College Mathematics Department office.
June 2017 - August 2017
LIBRARY PRESERVATION ASSISTANT
I worked in the Dartmouth College library preservation office managing, preserving, and binding various works.
June 2017 - August 2017
I worked with Dartmouth College Sociology Professor Kathryn Lively to start a new long-term sociology research project on how affect control theory applies to a weight loss program.
Jan 2017 - May 2017
ASTROPHYSICS RESEARCH ASSISTANT
I participated in astrophysics research for a NASA project on colliding stellar winds in low-mass binary systems at the Dartmouth College Shattuck Observatory with Professor Hans Mueller. This research focused on the Alpha Centauri system, and I presented the results of my research to other researchers, faculty, and the public at the Wetterhahn Science Symposium.
September 2015 - August 2016
SPACE SCIENCE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
I participated in research for a NASA project on ion injections in the Earth’s magnetosphere as apart of longer study on the topic at the University of New Hampshire Space Science Center. I also assisted professors and graduate students with their astrophysics research techniques and protocol.
