I completed my Ph.D. at Stanford's Virtual Human Interaction Lab. During my graduate career, I worked with Jeremy Bailenson in using immersive virtual reality (VR) as a platform for conducting experiments in social interaction and self-representation. In particular, we were interested in exploring how to break the rules of physical social interaction to enhance interactions in virtual environments.
