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. Always ready to talk 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 scientific computing community: conducting workshops at PyCons/PyDatas and contributing to python NLP libraries like Gensim and spaCy. I've published a book on how to do text analysis in Python, authored the python package pycobra, and have published in the Journal of Machine Learning Research.

(I also like to boulder and hike, read and write, play on my Nintendo Switch, hang out with my cat, and really enjoy music and dancing!)
