I am a 5th year PhD Candidate in Communication at Stanford University studying media psychology. My research examines how people perceive AI systems in interpersonal communication, and how these perceptions influence our language and the ways we think about ourselves and others. I am also interested in the conceptualization and measurement of digital media use.

We examine a gap between availability and accessibility as it relates to the adoption of AI-Mediated Communication (AI-MC) tools - including voice-assisted communication, language correction, predictive text suggestion, transcription, translation, and personalized language learning tools - by conducting an online survey. (Open Access Link - available until 10/01/21)
Through a meta-analysis, we investigate the relationship between self-reported and device-logged media use. (Open Access Link)
Through a between-subjects experimental design we examine how these processes are influenced when integrating AI language in the form of suggested responses (Google’s smart replies) into a text-based referential communication task. (PDF - Accepted Version)
We examine the possibility that different associations between social media and depression may be caused by the survey design itself, not by underlying differences in depression. (Open Access Link)
