I'm an Assistant Professor in the iSchool at University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. I am also a member of University of Maryland's Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), the Maryland Cybersecurity Center, and I have an affiliate appointment in the Department of Computer Science. I direct the NetCHI lab which is part of HCIL. Prior to joining UMD, I completed post-doctoral research fellowships at ResearchICTAfrica in Cape Town, South Africa and with Prof. W. Keith Edwards at the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. I received my Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Institute of Technology where I was advised by Prof. Rebecca E. Grinter. Before moving to the USA, I completed my MSc., BSc.(Hons), and BSc. in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, South Africa (my beautiful home country).
