I'm a first-year Ph.D. student in the department of Information Science at Cornell University, based in NYC at Cornell Tech. I work with Deborah Estrin, Nicola Dell and many others on the design and development of technologies that improve wellbeing for underserved communities. Specific problems that compel me include the potential for language processing methods to change how we conceptualize mental & behavioral wellbeing, the need for technology design frameworks that work for and not in spite of marginalized people, and the possibilities of privacy-preserving machine learning.

I earned a B.A. from Princeton University and an M.S. from Cornell Tech. In previous lives I made radio, print and multimedia journalism, developed mathematical models for disease spread and ran early-stage product development at a tech startup. I've also worked as a healthcare consultant in the U.S. and taught software engineering. Drop me a line -- I'm always interested in meeting new people.
