Hey there! I'm an undergrad in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech (go Jackets!) I'm advised by Polo Chau and Diyi Yang.
My interests lie at the intersection of human-computer interaction and machine learning. I'm fascinated by the amount of trust we place in automated algorithms without understanding how they affect interpersonal interactions online.
I've spent a bit of time as a research intern at Square, University of Southern California, and Cornell University.
Also: if you're an undergrad at Tech interested in research (especially if you're from a historically marginalized group), please reach out! I'm more than happy to chat about some of the opportunities here from the perspective of an undergrad.
