I am a computer scientist, software engineer, and cartographer based in Berkeley, CA. My passions lie at the intersection of programming languages (PL), human-computer interaction (HCI), data visualization, and geospatial technologies. I currently spend a lot of my time researching and working on programming tools for data journalists, Earth and climate scientists, and social scientists.
I also believe place shapes every part of who we are. These are the places that have shaped me.
What I'm Up To
I'm currently a Ph.D. student in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at UC Berkeley, advised by Professor Sarah Chasins. My research focuses on using novel techniques from programming languages and human-computer interaction research to build useful and usable programming tools for data journalists, climate researchers, and social scientists. Previously, I worked with the wonderful and talented folks at Formidable, where I contributed to their open source work. Check out some of my recent contributions.
