University of Chicago - USA

Currently a graduate student at the University of Chicago, finishing an MA in Computational Social Science, and doing my research at the Knowledge Lab. I work broadly in two fields - science of science, and ethics/fairness in Machine Learning and AI. I think it is important to think about the social ramifications of AI and technology, and am interested to see how the fields of Sociology and Philosophy interact with Computer Science.

I enjoy contributing to the open source python community: conducting workshops at PyCons/PyDatas and contributing to NLP libraries like Gensim and spaCy. I've published a book on text analysis in Python, and also authored the python package pycobra, and have published in the Journal of Machine Learning Research.

When I'm not thinking about or doing research, I like to boulder and climb, read and write, play on my Nintendo Switch, and enjoy art, theatre, music and dancing (literally all night long!).
