I'm currently a Ph.D. student in Information Science at Cornell University, based in NYC at Cornell Tech. I'm advised primarily by Nicola Dell and Deborah Estrin. I'm supported by a Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship.
I design and build sociotechnical systems to help us care for each other. 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. More fundamentally, I'm interested in mitigating the harms caused by technocratic largesse through feminist approaches to the design and development of computing systems.
I earned a B.A. from Princeton University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, focusing on epidemiological modeling for global health. I also earned an M.S. from Cornell Tech in Health Tech. In previous lives I made radio, print and multimedia journalism and ran early-stage product development at a consumer health tech startup. I've also worked as a healthcare consultant in the U.S. and taught software engineering.
