I'm a 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 aim to improve healthcare and wellbeing for marginalized people. Lately I've been working on large-scale computational analysis of the language of online therapy; justice-oriented design of caregiving systems in home health; and computer security for victims and survivors of intimate partner violence.

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.
