SM Candidate, Technology and Policy Program, MIT
Research Assistant, Internet Policy Research Initiative, MIT CSAIL

My current work is at the intersection between policy and the Internet: cybersecurity with a slant towards human factors and HCI. More specifically, I’m examining the idea of trusted security notifications from ISPs to their end users.

Other interests include scientific and technical communication (such as how to effectively relay complex concepts to users and policy makers), digital privacy, usability, and web measurement techniques. I’m also interested in how all of these technological fields relate to policy and politics—and how we can better understand those interactions to create smarter policy and savvier technology.

Before MIT, I studied decision science and Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon. I also did human-computer interaction research there, including privacy, HCI fabrication, and user studies. In my spare time, I pursue photography, music, and way too many side projects.
