Profile Biography 
I'm a SWE at Amazon Web Services in Seattle, working on Responsible AI and fairness in Machine learning at AWS. I work on the SageMaker Clarify team, which offers explainability and bias detection for AWS customers. I graduated from George Washington University in 2019 with a BS in Computer Science and Math with a minor in Creative Writing. I really enjoy Computer Science--particularly Artificial Intelligence--research, which I've been doing since 2016. At GW, I worked on two research projects: one using AI to model fairness and diversity in the hiring process and one using deep learning to detect pro-Eating Disorder images to improve ED patient health outcomes. In Summer 2018, I interned at Microsoft Research and worked on a project speeding up matrix multiplication algorithms with group theory. I am a 2018 Google Lime Scholar and received 2 Honorable Mentions for the NCWIT Collegiate Awards (2018 and 2019).
After graduation, I spent a year doing Computer Science research in Germany with CBYX. I eventually want to pursue a PhD in Computer Science. My research interests include algorithmic fairness, privacy, and artificial intelligence. In my free time, I travel, read incessantly, listen to music, hike, and write poetry + fiction.
