My name is Lisa.

I'm a 1st year PhD student in the Human Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests center designing to improve the health and well-being of marginalized communities.

In my free time I love to ride my bike and make Spotify playlists! I'm constantly searching for ways to travel and capture moments with my camera.

Early on in college, I was super involved in Women of Power, an organization at OU devoted to empowering women of color.

I recently wrote a Medium article outlining my journey to becoming Marketing Strategist for Hacklahoma. Learn about my hackathon experience!

A couple of years ago I lived abroad for a semester in Italy! Check out my interview.

This past semester, I got to work closely with well respected faculty/students on privacy/security research.
