Carnegie Mellon University Graduate

Pittsburgh, PA

I graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelor's of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, from the College of Engineering at CMU. Noteworthy classes include: Computer Systems, Digital System Design, Computer Graphics, and Computer Security.

I also recieved a minor in Human-Computer Interaction from CMU HCII. It was there that I discovered research into social technology and how we may strive to analyze and improve it.


My Research Experience at CMU

Conducted at the Institute for Software Reseach and the Human-Computer Interaction Institute.

Since Sep. 2019, I have conducted several empirical studies of open source communities concerning gender differences in newcomer trajectories, conversations regarding community governance, and the impact of maintainers on newcomer retention under the guidance of my professors, Dr. Laura Dabbish and Dr. James Herbsleb at the Connected Experience (CoEx) Lab.


Industry Experience

I've worked in several technical roles.

Through multiple internships, including at Consolidated Edison, Inc. and Deutsche Bank, I've been lucky to experience and work in several different industries and explore different areas of technology. My industry work has been critical in understanding the context and real-world applications of HCI and SE research.
