I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, jointly advised by Jen Mankoff, in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, and Steve Fienberg, in the Department of Statistics. My research interests are, broadly, using computation to solve challenges in environmental sustainability and intelligently ordering questions in online surveys. I am a member of the Make Abilities Group.
Outside of research, I’m also involved with Women@SCS at CMU and volunteer with TechNights, a weekly program to introduce middle-school girls to the excitement of computer science through hands-on lessons and activities. Examples of sessions I helped to design and lead include recommender systems, parallelism, and signal processing.
Before coming to CMU in 2012, I got my undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, where I majored in computer science, classics, and math.
