Megan is a Phd Student at the Human Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon Unviversity. Her research focuses on the intersection of digital fabrication, disability, and healthcare. Her research has explored 3D printed prosthetics and assistive technology and developed novel 3D modeling frameworks that support 3D printed model reusability. Her current research is exploring the design of Clinical CAD tools that will enable healthcare professionals to design and print a wide variety of medical devices. Much of this research has been published at top HCI conferences such as CHI, ASSETS, and CSCW.
She is advised by Prof. Jennifer Mankoff of the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science at the University of Washington and and Prof. Scott E. Hudson of the CMU HCII. She is an NSF Fellow, and a Center for Machine Learning and Health Fellow. She completed her bachelors in Computer Science at Colorado State University in 2017. During her Undergraduate degree Megan's research was adviced by Dr. Jaime Ruiz and Prof. Amy Hurst.
