Computer Science and Political Science Student
I’m an undergraduate computer science and political science student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I’m excited about applications of computing that serve the public good. I’m interested in studying how to build robust automated systems that can perform useful tasks with minimal human intervention. I’m particularly interested in tackling problems with potential future applications serving a societal interest. In the context of societal inequities, I’m also particularly interested in designing these systems with inbuilt constraints that prevent undesirable behavior and misuse, while ideally helping to alleviate inequalities.
Through my research, I strive to advance ideals of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
