I am currently a second year masters student at the University of Waterloo for Systems Design Engineering. I am being supervised by Professor Jennifer Boger and Professor Ning Jiang for my thesis, which focuses on developing brain-computer interfaces for autism spectrum disorder. I have a variety of interests in user experience design, software engineering, and signal processing. I received my bachelor of Knowledge Integration in 2016. My bachelor's education focused on interdisciplinary collaboration and developing the soft skills required to facilitate large, complex projects. I graduated with formal specializations in computer science and collaborative design. My dream is to blend all of my interests to help design, develop, and validate medical systems to be used in hospitals and by consumers.
