bio

I’m currently a Computer Science PhD student at Duke University, working under Jun Yang and Bhuwan Dhingra. My research is focused on vaccine misinformation, and generating automatic interventions for combatting vaccine hesitancy. I’m passionate about global-scale issues and have a vast experience working in many different cultures.
I am a first-year Computer Science PhD student at Duke University. My research is focused on vaccine misinformation, and generating automatic interventions for combatting vaccine hesitancy. I’m co-advised by Jun Yang and Bhuwan Dhingra.

I recently graduated Summa Cum Laude in three years from Northeastern University with a BS in Computer Engineering. In 2020 I was inducted into the Huntington 100 group, an annual list of the top 100 most influential students from the University’s 18,000+ undergraduates. I also received the PEAK Research fellowship for my 6-month full-time work under Renée J. Miller, working on the schema inference problem for open data.

During my time at Northeastern, I sat as the Title IX Board Chair, overseeing student misconduct cases regarding issues ranging from sexual assault to stalking. I was also a full voting member of SVF, an investment fund managing ~$215,000 of Northeastern’s Endowment. Additionally, I helped shape curriculum changes to three majors of the College of Engineering as an advisory board member for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.

Much of my other relevant experience pertains to cultural agility. I have worked on projects and full-time jobs in Southeast Asia, Africa, and North America; lived in Europe, Southeast Asia, and the US; studied in North America, South America, and Southeast Asia; as well as completed various international training programs in 7 countries. I speak fluent English and Swedish, and can converse at a limited proficiency in Spanish and Indonesian.

May 11, 2020 - May 20, 2020

I wrote this website from scratch using a combination of html, css, and javascript. All buttons, formatting, and style choices are specifically designed for this site. The design is the result of inspirations from some of the best designed personal websites I've seen, along with features I've always thought were missing. My preference for simplicity and cleanliness is obvious. Fancy action-images panning over the background and complex dropdown menus just seemed wrong. My hope is that people don't spend too much time on my site. The mantra should be: find what you needed, and get the hell out! If you'd like to see my code without hitting
cmd+shift+C
(or because you wanna give me some credit for a decent website), fork my github repo! And if you find an issue with the site, please feel free to open a ticket there.
