Pre-doctoral Researcher, University of Chicago
I am an artificial intelligence researcher, software engineer, and occasional writer. I am interested in exploring the relationships between language, knowledge, and society. At Knowledge Lab, I work on projects that use machine learning and natural language processing techniques to discover concept structures and worldviews across a variety of data sources.
Before joining Knowledge Lab, I spent time as a research assistant with John Lafferty, Ben Zhao, and John Goldsmith working on a variety of natural language processing projects. On the engineering side, I did an internship at Alphabet’s autonomous vehicle division Waymo (at Google X), and was the machine learning lead at Simmer (a YCombinator-backed startup). My writing has been featured by the Berkman-Klein Center for Internet & Society, and The Economist.
I grew up in New York City (where, as a matter of survival, I quickly learned my way around both gallery openings and giant rats). I graduated from the University of Chicago in 2019 with degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy.
