Hi! I’m Serena. I care about thoughtfully creating technology for a more inclusive, kind and just world. I’ve been making and breaking the web since 1999, and have been plugged into the Matrix ever since.

While my formal training is in physics and mathematics, I love working in the intersections between fields. I’m interested in behavioural design and how it affects the way we make and consume our technology.

For my day job I work as an interaction designer on the security and privacy teams at Google Chrome and Chromium.

a quiet monstrosity
she waits, seething, blooming

You are radiant and forever. Welcome to Night Vale
