My name is Layne and I'm a triple PhD student in computer science, cognitive science, and neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder.
I also taught preschool.
I'm the founder and director of MindScribe, where we make interactive robotic objects to support young children in telling reflective stories about their creative play.
My work is funded by an NSF GRFP fellowship, a Chancellor's fellowship, and an $80K grant from OpenIDEO and Gary Community Investments.
I'm a former foster kid and I'm autistic — I'd love to collaborate with you on how creativity & reflection might support resilience to trauma.
I'm on the job market! I plan to complete my (triple) Ph.D. by Summer 2021.

I'm interested in industry and academic positions as a research & design fellow.
