I am a computer science graduate student at the University of Colorado, Boulder. My interests lie within computational social science; more specifically, I study how gender, institutional prestige, and other factors affect faculty career outcomes. I am a member of Aaron Clauset's research group. Previously, I was employed for two years as a data scientist at Lytics in Portland, OR. Before that I studied physics at Reed College and was advised by Joel Franklin. I'm proud to be a woman in STEM. At Reed, I co-founded a group called "STEMfemmes". When I'm not at work, I like riding my Jamis bike and trying new recipes.
