Annie Kelly holds a BS in Computer Science and is a lover of all things musical – whether it’s jamming with friends or rocking out at concerts. Annie is interested in creating new audio visual music technologies for collaborative performances. She wants to analyze how different musical interface designs can empower performers to unlock their creative potential. She began working in the ATLAS Lab for Playful Computation during her undergraduate studies and she is continuing on in graduate school with Ben Shapiro as her advisor.
