Greetings, I am a PhD student at the Interactive Intelligent Systems Laboratory (IIS-Lab) under the guidance of Koji Yatani at the University of Tokyo, Japan. I completed my M.Eng at the University of Tokyo (IIS-Lab) and B.S. in Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

My main research interests include EdTech, real-time feedback and visualization interfaces, chat communication systems, and UI/UX design. Currently, I am researching visualizations for online learning sessions.
