I recently completed my PhD in Computational and Data Sciences at Washinton University in St. Louis where I was advised by Dr. Sanmay Das  at George Mason University and Dr. Patrick Fowler in the Division of Computational and Data Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.

I started as a Data Science Preceptor at the University of Chicago's Data Science Institute in June 2022. My research interests involve the intersection of computer science and the social sciences. I am especially interested in fair applications of AI to social-scientific questions. My current work combines machine learning and human decision-making to inform fair and efficient service allocations for homeless families.
