Doctoral candidate at the University of Washington in the department of Human Centered Design & Engineering. I study the risks and opportunities that come with social media platforms becoming increasingly interwoven with public discourse. A second thread of my research involves integrating ethics (particularly practices of reflective self-examination) with engineering & computer science education. My work asks how we can adapt our tools and ourselves to flourish as a more networked and interdependent human family. I’ve also had the good fortune to work as a researcher and consultant with several large organizations like Facebook, Yahoo!, The World Bank and the UNDP.
