At the convergence of Computer Science, Math, and Writing

I am a junior at the George Washington University double-majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics (pure concentration), with a minor in Creative Writing. During Summer 2017, I am working at UMD's REU CAAR, working on a project modeling kidney exchange, advised by Dr. John P. Dickerson. My personal research project studies online harassment at the university level and seeks to create tools to combat it, funded by a grant from the Silicon Valley Community Fund and Intel called Hack Harassment. I also do research in GW's Learning Technologies Research Group advised by Dr. Rahul Simha. My research interests are broadly in the realm of theoretical CS, including: computability theory, graph theory, cryptography, and machine learning. In my free time, I read incessantly and write poetry + fiction.

Involvement

Hack Harassment Grant + Research Project

I'm studying the occurrence of online harassment among undergraduate students, funded by a Hack Harassment grant. In November 2017, part of my grant will fund incentives to create technological solutions for online harassment at Hackital.

Natural Language Processing and Generation Research with LeTR

In Summer 2016, I participated in GW's School of Engineering and Applied Science Summer Undergraduate Program for Engineering Research (SUPER), working in the Learning Technologes Research Group (LeTR), on the CAPITAL project.
