PhD Student in Information Science at University of Colorado Boulder
I am a PhD student researching identity representations in technical infrastructures.
Broadly, I am interested in identity theory, infrastructure studies, AI ethics, and digital identity.
I focus primarily on machine learning infrastructures that operationalize human identity characteristics, like gender and race.
In particular, I explore the real-world implications of machine learning for those with historically marginalized identities.
I am advised by Jed Brubaker in the Identity Lab.
PDFs of my work can be found on my Research page. Non-publication specific projects can be found under the Projects tab. This includes the HCI Gender Guidelines and my Prelim Reading List documentation.
