At the convergence of CS, Math, and Writing

I am a Data Scientist at Amazon, working on abuse detection and upholding trust in the Amazon retail site, part of the Community Trust org. My research interests are broadly in responsible AI, including algorithmically modeling (un)fairness/interpretability/diversity and the foundational processes of implementing RAI in ML systems (Responsible MLOps). From the theoretical side, I particularly like graph theory, learning theory, and algorithms.

While at Amazon, I also worked as a Machine Learning Software Engineer for AWS SageMaker Clarify, which offers bias detection and explainability methods for ML models and datasets hosted on AWS. Prior to that, I worked for the Secure AI Foundations Privacy org in Alexa AI, deploying ML models to detect and redact PII/PD in the Alexa ecosystem.

Before starting at Amazon, I was a Junior Ambassador and Fellow of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX). As a Fellow, I represented the U.S. in Germany for a year-long cultural exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag. During my fellowship, I was a Research Intern at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems with Krishna Gummadi, focusing on ethical interventions for Machine Learning projects.

I attended George Washington University, graduating with a BS in Computer Science and Mathematics with a minor in Creative Writing. Along the way, I'm grateful to have worked on a variety of projects with some amazing mentors, most in the realm of AI for Social Good:

In my free time, I read incessantly, write poetry + fiction, and learn (foreign to me) languages.
