Projects  Reading List   Resume

I’m a senior computer science and math major at the University of Maryland. Currently, I'm working with John Dickerson to study fairness in rideshare algorithms and with Jordan Boyd-Graber on extending entity linking algorithms to improve question answering. Next year, I'll be going to the University of Cambridge on a Churchill Scholarship to study an MPhil in Advanced Computer Science. After the completion of my MPhil, I will be joining the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University with an NSF GFRP.

I am interested in working on problems involving machine learning, artificial intelligence, and mechanism design for applications such as fairness, healthcare, and criminal justice. In particular, I'm interested in the ability of these computational tools to make decisions while preserving fairness, especially in uncertain situations.
