I'm a second year computer science PhD student at Cornell working on questions in fairness in machine learning. I'm extremely fortunate to be advised by Jon Kleinberg.

Previously, I have been a data scientist working at Booz Allen Hamilton's Boston office as well as a researcher in evolutionary game theory with with Oliver Hauser, Christian Hilbe, and Martin Nowak at the Program of Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard.

My previous projects have included modeling the impact of climate change on streamflow data, clustering sparse data with autoencoders, synthetic data for transfer learning, Bayesian anomaly detection on social networks, and detailed simulations of resource flows in complex environments. My undergraduate degree was at Harvard, a major in pure math with a minor in statistics.

My real world interests include hiking in gorges, baking desserts with friends, and reading.
