I am a social psychologist currently working as a games user researcher on the Xbox Research team at Microsoft. I use my expertise in human behavior, social interaction, and designing and conducting behavioral research to provide insight on user needs and preferences for Xbox's first-party studios. I have a developed skill set in both quantitative and qualitative analysis, using a wide variety of methods - heuristic evaluations, usability studies, group playtests, panel surveys, interviews, and fieldwork - to provide deep, actionable insight to game development teams.

My background is social & health psychology, with a specialization in advanced statistical and research methods. Before I worked on games and tech, I spent several years investigating how people's social interactions and behavior influenced HIV risk behaviors, drug abuse, and mental health. I've also worked as a statistics and research methods consultant, advising scientists and professionals on the design of research projects and analysis of data.
