I’m a senior computer science and math major at the University of Maryland, and a 2021 Goldwater Scholar. I'm working with John Dickerson on introducing fairness methods to ride-pooling algorithms. I'm also working with Jordan Boyd-Graber on extending Entity Linking to improve down stream performance on entity linking. I am interested in working on problems involving machine learning, artificial intelligence, and mechanism design for applications such as fairness, healthcare, and criminal justice.

This summer (2021) I'm working as a research intern on the artificial intelligence team at MIT Lincoln Labs under Dr. Michael Yee. Last summer (2020), I worked as a Software Engineering Intern at Facebook in the Feed-Ranking team. I worked on full stack web application using React and Hack.
