Social Acceptability Pathfinder

I am the Social Acceptability Pathfinder in Reality Labs focused on understanding how people come to accept new technologies into their everyday lives and what that means for novel devices. Prior to Reality Labs, I worked at Microsoft on the HoloLens focused on enterprise applications and supporting AR developers.

I have an academic background in medical anthropology and demography (Brown, PhD '17) and am broadly interested in how people define and experience things like "trust," "connection," and "morality." My work prior to entering industry focused on HIV and the performance of self among immigrants in Miami, Florida.
