I’m interested in systems of justice, tech policy, cybersecurity, disinformation, artificial intelligence, open source software, and human-centered design. My projects, research, and commentary have appeared in several outlets including the Washington Post, the New York Times, NBC News, TIME, Foreign Affairs, Brookings, and the Nightly News with Lester Holt. I’m an undergraduate at Stanford.
Some of the projects I’m most proud of are PrivacySpy, Shynet, PolitiTweet, my work at the Stanford Internet Observatory, and a17t. I help teach CS 106S at Stanford, I worked on cyber policy for a 2020 presidential campaign, and I’m a non-resident fellow at the Cornell Tech Policy Lab.
I’m currently taking a few classes on Zoom, working at the Stanford Internet Observatory, and enjoying summer. Right now, I’m in New York City.
