I am a PhD student in the Computer Science & Engineering school at UW, where I work in the ICTD group, advised by Kurtis Heimerl. Previously, I was a researcher at the United Nations University Institute on Computing and Society, in Macau, where I worked on the social media tracking tool Aggie.
I am interested in global justice in technology development as well as practices that give people power over the technology that shapes their world, including participatory design, free software, and popular governance.
I got my bachelor's degrees in math and computer science from Carnegie Mellon University in fall of 2015. My CMU education was supplemented by the lovely Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program. In university, my academic interests focused on graph theory, logic, network routing theory, and quantum computing.
