Empowering Youth as Philosophers of Technology in Schools
I’m a postdoctoral researcher and Computing Innovations Fellow at the University of Washington’s Code & Cognition Lab. I earned my PhD in 2021, my M.S. in 2020 from the University of Chicago, and my B.S. from the University of Virginia in 2017, all in Computer Science. My research interests include computer science education and human-computer interaction, particularly in justice-focused computing for young learners. I have been named an EECS Rising Star and a Harper Fellow. My work has won Best Paper at the International Computing Education Research Conference (ICER) and an honorable mention for Best Paper at the conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (SIGCHI). In addition to ICER and SIGCHI, I have also published my research at the conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE) and the Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE).
