Hafa Adai, I'm Carlo!

Designer, researcher, photographer, plant-lover, foodie

I grew up in the island of Guam, surrounded by warmth, palm trees, and sandy beaches.

I'm suprisingly enjoying all of Michigan's snow (so far!).

I studied Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Before that, I studied computer science at the University of Guam and dabbled with philosophy and psychology.

During my time at the University of Michigan, I was advised by Dr. Florian Schaub and worked on UX security and privacy research, in which we published several papers. I also defended my thesis, which was published in SOUPS 2020, where I received the SOUPS/Facebook 2020 Diversity Grant. 

I was the Vice-President of the A2DataDive, where we held workshops and data jams centered on social and civic service to help non-profits with their data problems. 

I was a student at the iSchool Inclusion Institute (i3) as well as the School of Computation in Detroit.

I have worked on several projects in UX ranging from mobile communication apps to health care technologies. 

I interned at Yerbba where I helped in the UX design, research, and development process to release their product that helps patients with breast cancer navigate their diagnosis.

I am inspired by minimalist design and nature.

When I'm not designing or working, I am a cook, nature-lover, and photographer. I am a jazz enthusiast and (used to) play the alto sax. I also love to run, write, and play video games.
