Hi! I am a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University working with Zakir Durumeric. I recently graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign with a PhD in Computer Science, where I was lucky to work with Michael Bailey in the NSRG. Before that, I graduated with a degree in computer science from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!). During my post doc, I will be working on tools to measure and mitigate the effects of online hate and harassment. My post doc is generously supported by a CI Fellowship. You can find my publications here.

I'm also a playwright and composer. Baked! The Musical, my first show co-written with Jordan Liu, recently closed at the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival where it won awards for best lyrics, best lead performer, best supporting performer, and best ensemble. You can find more about my creative work here.
