I am a Postdoc at MIT's Center for Constructive Communication, interested in using tools from computation and design to foster pluralism—an inclusive response to diversity in society—in ways that help reduce educational, economic, and social barriers to living a quality life.

I completed my PhD at the MIT Media Lab in June 2021. In Fall 2022, I'll be starting a joint appointment as an Assistant Professor of Design and Data between the D'Amore-McKim School of Business and College of Arts, Media and Design at Northeastern University, where I'll be leading a new research effort: the Plural Connections Group.
