Hi there! I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Government at Harvard University.
My research is at the intersection of politics and computing. I am interested in the political economy of technology and information, including the influence, perception, and regulation of traditional and social media, automation and prediction technologies, and other emerging technologies. I am also interested in using and creating natural language processing, machine learning, and game theoretic models to study political beliefs and behaviors.
Previously, I received my B.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Political Science at Columbia University, where I was advised by Prof. Kathleen McKeown and Prof. Carlo Prato. I have also worked with the Research and Development department at the New York Times and the News Framing Lab at the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute.
