Like the ISchool, computational cognitive science is inherently interdisciplinary, and pulls in theory and methods from psychology, computer science & AI research, philosophy of mind, and human computer interaction.

As a researcher with a mixed identity as a designer and engineer, the objective of understanding cognition through the lens of information processing is both an end and a means. I'm interested in applying a growing understanding of how our brains solve complex problems to collective intelligence settings that might benefit from improved communication and collaboration.
Before coming to the ISchool, I was a product designer, technologist and entrepreneur working on projects in Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda. I graduated from Stanford University with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Political Science. I moved to Kenya in 2010 with Kiva.org, and subsequently co-founded Echo Mobile, a Nairobi-based firm that empowers organizations with mobile technology to understand the realities of the field, and make data-driven decisions.
