About Me


I am Lisa, an incoming Ph.D. student at the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering.

I graduated from Wellesley College, a historically women’s liberal arts college, in June 2021. I double majored in Computer Science and Philosophy. I also studied abroad at the University of Oxford, Worcester College during my third year of undergraduate.

My research interests are HCI (human-computer interaction) and ICTD (information and communication technology for development). My research objective is to execute technology-driven participatory action research to mitigate social and technical challenges faced by groups that are oppressed by their intersectional identities. I am especially interested in issues related to gender, health, education, and accessibility.

The first two years of my Ph.D. are funded by The Funai Foundation for Information Technology.
