About Me

I am a data scientist and researcher focused on questions at the intersection of machine learning and public policy. I am currently a Data Scientist and Algorithmic Justice Specialist at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Previously, I was a Technology Fellow in the U.S. Senate, where I worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee Antitrust Subcommittee through the TechCongress fellowship program. My work in the Senate focused on policy related to online safety, algorithmic decision-making, and competition in digital markets. I was also previously a data scientist at the Stanford Computational Policy Lab and spent time at HuggingFace, where I focused on building and improving model cards for machine learning models. I hold an M.S. in Management Science and Engineering (Computational Social Science) and a B.S. in Mathematical and Computational Science, both from Stanford University.
