I'm a PhD student in the Media, Technology, and Society program out of the School of Communication at Northwestern University. At Northwestern,  I work with Eszter Hargittai at the Web Use Project.

I study how people develop the social and technical skills to protect their privacy online, the way technology impacts group collaboration and collective action, as well as the causes and impacts of digital inequalities.

I have my Master of Science in Information from University of Michigan's School of Information. During my time there, I worked with John King and Sarita Yardi Schoenebeck. I also spent time on various extracurricular activities, such as co-organizing Ann Arbor Data Dive and working on projects out of the LED Lab.  Before I left, I wrote a thesis applying theories from urban planning to understand the lifecycle of online platforms.

In my spare time, I serve as Senior Project Manager for FemTechNet, try to teach myself how to ice skate, and cook. A lot.
