I'm an Associate Professor of Computer Science at North Carolina State University, where my students and I study how visual technologies affect human emotion, thinking and behavior. Our work in the Visual Experience Lab spans user experience, computer graphics, visualization, human-computer interfaces and virtual reality. I also co-founded NexUX, a collaborative that seeks to improve our lives through deeply interdisciplinary collaboration.

I have worked in the Computer Science department at North Carolina State University since January, 2006. Previously, I worked at Northwestern University and the University of Alberta. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science under the kind supervision of Dr. Larry Hodges at Georgia Tech's College of Computing and GVU Center.
