Hi, I'm Gabby

I'm a computer science masters student at Brown University, pursuing a career in user experience.

Currently, I'm a graduate student in the Brown HCI Lab, focusing on computational solutions for mental health challenges. This past summer, I worked as a Product Design intern at Facebook, specifically on the Oculus App Store. For more details, see my full resume

If I'm not working at the computer, you can find me playing with my bunny or flying to a new city. I love trying new things and hope to visit 10 new countries before I turn 25.

Fun fact: Dribbble is my favorite way to stalk people.
