I am a PhD student at Stanford’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics. I study Artful Design, as applied to programming as a mode of creative self-expression. Within that, I study the creation of new programming languages that are manipulated from within VR to create musical sculptures and environments. I use these as a lens to investigate what it means to program, who programs, and why.

I completed my undergrad in the Computer Science department at UC Berkeley, where I graduated with highest honors with a research emphasis in music (see the Projects section).
