About Me

I was born in Houston, Texas, and raised in Missouri. I spent my undergraduate years at Stanford University studying philosophy and competing at intercollegiate debate tournaments. I graduated with honors in Ethics in Society, defending my senior thesis on the ethics of racial preferences in dating. I just finished my master's degree in computer science in June 2021, also at Stanford. I specialized in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and worked as a teaching assistant for CS142: Web Applications.

I am now an empirical research fellow at Stanford's Regulation, Evaluation, and Governance Lab, where I work on data science projects to assist Santa Clara County in its ongoing COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing efforts. When I'm not coding, you'll probably find listening to a politics podcast, taking a walk to Starbucks, or baking some dangerously sweet dessert bars.
