I am excited by product management, user experience, and commercializing emerging technologies. I also have secondary interests in storytelling that uses virtual or augmented reality, as well as in AI and machine learning.
In the past, I have analyzed player strategies and group behavior in Foldit, an online multiplayer citizen science game, and I completed an internship on the Data Science Team at Harvard University’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science. At Harvard, I worked on genTB – a project exploring the statistical analysis of genomic data for antibiotic resistant strains of mycobacterium tuberculosis – and developed a new UI scheme enabling TwoRavens (data visualization and statistical analysis tool) to incorporate large genomic datasets. In both of these projects, I worked on collaborative teams and personally analyzed large & unstructured datasets.
I attended the Santa Fe Institute's Complex Systems Winter School in December 2015, and I have a Masters degree in Anthropology from Vanderbilt University. At Vanderbilt, I was COO for Cornelius Predictive Analytics (part of Tech Venture Challenge), and I collaborated with representatives from business and law to write the pitch deck for our B2B medical software technology. At Vanderbilt, I also studied feedback loops between social stratification and dietary variation for a prehistoric human society. Prior to Vanderbilt, I earned a B.A. magna cum laude from Emory University in Anthropology.
