About

Hi! I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019 with a BS in Computer Engineering and a BA in Plan II (Liberal Arts). My interests include algorithmic fairness, responsible technology, literature, community engagement, philosophy, economics, statistics, privacy, and intentionality.

Content in this site represent personal views only and are not reflective of any organization that I am part of. This site is also a way for me to practice my writing, so please take everything with a grain (or more) of salt!

Feel free to contact me here or on Twitter with questions and thoughts related to my writing, my experiences, or this site in general!
