Hello! I recently completed my undergraduate degree in computer science at Georgia Tech. I also dabble in mathematics, philosophy, and linguistics.

Broadly, I’m interested in understanding the sociocultural implications of language technologies and how to minimize non-normative behaviors in intelligent agents.

My current research at Georgia Tech is in NLP techniques applied to the value alignment problem, advised by Mark Riedl.

I’m also a research assistant at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Norman Sadeh. At CMU I’m interested in NLP applied to data security and privacy.

Previously, I was a research assistant at The Ohio State University (advised by Dong Xuan), and a Full-Stack Software Engineering Intern at FlightBridge.
