Listener and Defender. Podcast Enthusiast. The Mom Friend. The One who always takes pictures of food before eating.

My hope is to be an individual who empowers others through research and design in my professional career. To learn more about me, check out my resumes for research and design.

Please contact me through email at eding@andrew.cmu.edu or message through Linkedin.

Psychology

I care about the "whys" in every situation. It's important to me to strive for greater depths of understanding, especially in terms of human behavior.

Computer Science

Born and raised in this digital age, I innovate alongside the thought of if and how technology can be appropriately employed.

Design

I think and create with intention to implement solutions and shift patterns in complex systems and ultimately make an impact in the matters I care about.
