I am currently pursuing a PhD in computer science at the University of Washington's Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering. Previously, received dual masters degrees in Applied Statistics and Information Science at the University of Michigan, where I worked with Christopher Brooks in the Educational Technology Collective (etc). I received a BA in Philosophy from the University of Michigan. I have experience in machine learning research and software development at Google, GoPro, ProQuest, and the Penn Center for Learning Analytics. Previously, I served for five years in Miami-Dade Country Public Schools and KIPP New Orleans Schools.

My current research is at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, and neuroscience, with an emphasis on how deep learning algorithms can both assist and learn from humans in complex visual and scientific tasks.

Awards and honors for my past work include a Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK), the Margaret Mann Award, the UMSI Professional Practice Fellowship, and the William K. Frankena Prize.
