Hello! I am interested in theoretical computer science, computational social science and the foundations of machine learning, and I recently graduated from Yale with a degree in computer science.

I am very excited about the blog Computation and Society that I helped start and to which I regularly contributed as a research affiliate of the Computation and Society Initiative at Yale. The blog addresses foundational questions that arise as algorithms and data-driven technologies permeate and alter various aspects of modern society.

I have also written about detecting deepfakes using transformers, progressive faith-based activism in New Haven, and Ben Carson's time at Yale.
