I use computers to explore the language, information, and cultural values contained in large collections of text. Ultimately, I aim to build interactive AI systems that enhance the way people organize, access, discover, and produce knowledge.
Currently, I am a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University's Langauge Technologies Institute advised by Emma Strubell, and a student researcher at Google NYC. These days, my research is focused on topics in natural language processing, information retrieval, and human-AI interaction.
Previously, I've worked on computational social science at Knowledge Lab, autonomous driving at Waymo / Google X, and EdTech policy at Harvard. I received undergraduate degrees in computer science, philosophy, and linguistics from the University of Chicago.
Outside the computer world I have been an actor, a mock trial competitor, and publicly angry about climate change. I enjoy cooking, making music, reading poetry, hiking, arts & crafts, and going out dancing.
