I am interested in HCI and social computing research. Specifically, I research intersectional notions of identity and how that impacts experiences of safety and harm in the context of technology use and design for marginalized populations. My current research focuses on conceptions of gender in Automatic Gender Recognition (AGR) algorithms that uses computer vision technology to and its implications for safety and bias for transgender individuals. I am also exploring the ways transgender users experience abuse online and how that maps to their offline lives.
I previously completed my Master of Science in Human-Centered Computing at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), where I was co-advised by Stacy Branham and Foad Hamidi. You can see more about my educational history and professional experience on my CV.
