My name is Lisa Egede.

I'm currently a 2nd year PhD student in the Human Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at Carnegie Mellon University where I'm advised by Geoff Kaufman.

My research interests center around understanding how Black communities are impacted by technology/understanding the sociotechnical experiences of historically excluded communities more broadly. In doing this, I want to reimagine potential solutions through participatory design and community based approaches.

In my free time I enjoy riding my bike, making spotify playlist's and taking pictures on my film camera!
