I’m a first year PhD student at the University of Washington Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering, and I’m advised by René Just. I am interested in creating tools, whether they be software or programming languages, that are both elegant and actually useful. I am also passionate about lowering the boundaries to learning computer science for women, people of color, people with disabilities, and other under-represented groups.

Before I was at UW, I went to Wellesley College near Boston, MA where I double majored in computer science and mathematics.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, drawing, arts and crafts, puzzles and board games, and growing succulents. Since moving to Seattle, I’ve also gotten into biking around on the Burke-Gilman trail.
