Hi! I’m a Software Engineer, currently working at Airbnb.
I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in May 2017, with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Computer Science and a minor in Math.
I am excited about solving complex problems in computer science, and I am passionate about using computer science to enable others.
At Penn, I did research in Natural Language Processing with Chris Callison-Burch. My research involved developing automatic methods of ranking adjectives by their intensity (e.g., good < great < excellent). Additionally, I served as Co-Director of Hack4Impact, a student-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit that designs and develops software for nonprofit organizations. I also served as Head Teaching Assistant for Penn’s introductory data structures and algorithms course, CIS 121.
I have held software engineering internships at Apple and Google.
I am also the founder of WiC Hacks, a hackathon for college and high school women at Rochester Institute of Technology, which is in its fourth year.
You can get in touch with me by email, or check out some of my software projects on GitHub.
