I am a doctoral candidate in the Human Centered Design and Engineering Department at the University of Washington. I am motivated to better understand how knowledge is developed in a rapidly changing climate. For my thesis research, I ethnographically study the sociotechnical practices of scientific knowledge production specific to a Wild Alaska salmon data archiving initiative. As such, I work closely with the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences to bridge social science and nature science. I also hold a Master of Arts from Georgetown University where I conducted an ethnographic study of how citizens engage with scientific data in the context of extractive industries. My work is featured in journals such as ACM’s CHI, Design Research Society (DRS), and Ecology and Society.
