Hello, I'm Tara! I'm currently a Master of Information candidate from the University of Toronto (2020). Before that, I graduated with an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo.

I design and research in a broad variety of fields. At my core, I'm on a mission to craft delightful and meaningful experiences through both avenues. I'm hugely passionate about speculative design, social change, and figuring out how to design responsibly with data. My goal is to study the complex relationship between people and technology, which I investigate through empathy, creativity, and a holistic user-centred approach.

So we get it—Tara, you're a bit of a nerd. But what goes on when I'm not reading papers or pushing pixels? I love terrible GIFs and am a recovering caffeine addict. I'm also a casual ballerina and an even casual-er world traveller, but I promise I put 100% of myself into everything I do.
