Machine Learning Ethics Researcher, Physicist, Data Wrangler

Prounouns: they/them

I am deeply invested in making sure that the technologies we build are safe and equitable for all.

I have have both undergraduate and doctorate degrees in Physics from Harvard University, where I worked on the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. My graduate work focused on the Higgs Boson, from its discovery, to measuring its properties, to using it as a tool to search for new physics.

Since graduate school, I have worked as a machine learning researcher. From 2016 to 2018 I was a member of the Machine Intelligence group at Draper in Cambridge, MA, where I worked on projects related to the automated classification and repair of bugs in source code. From 2018-2021, I worked as a Machine Learning Scientist at Lightmatter, a startup building a new hardware accelerator for machine learning based on silicon photonics. Recently, I joined Twitter, where I will be working as a Senior Researcher focused on mitigating the potential harms of algorithmic systems.
