About Me

I am an undergraduate student pursuing a B.A. in Computer Science and Mathematics at Pomona College (Claremont, CA). I am a member of ACM’s SIG-CSE. I’m interested in machine bias and fairness, accountability, and transparency in algorithms, as well as intersectional work in this space. (FAT*). I am passionate about increasing diversity (2017, 2018) in technology and addressing the workplace wage gap.

I interned as a software engineer at Facebook Inc. in the summers of 2017 and 2018. I worked with Core Growth on the Login team which has ownership over Faceook Login and Account Recovery.

Current Projects

A CS Education research paper on Pseudocode as an intermediate step in problem decomposition.

I work at Pomona’s HCI Lab under Dr. Papoutsaki on WebGazer, an open-source project hosted on GitHub that democratizes eye tracking. Here’s a short video on WebGazer and some of its applications.
