PhD in Human Computer Interaction

Social platforms increasingly mediate our social interactions, and the work within HCI that explores how they shape experience is overwhelmingly heteronormative. My research aims to contribute a queer perspective that shows how social platforms play a role in the lives and experiences of queer young men and to aid designers in creating technology that is more supportive of them.

Design workshops

Based on the findings from my research so far, I'm running co-design workshops in the SF Bay Area when I visit in June 2023.

I'm looking for people interested in helping me explore how the design of social platforms could be better for queer young men.
