I'm a 3rd year PhD student in the
Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering
Amy J. Ko. Presently, my research interests are centered
around career decisions made by students in computing, and what
factors inform those decisions. I get excited/angry about a whole
bunch of things, including
political identity, the role of computing in society, and problem
selection. I'm working to change the narrative
around computing (currently vying for the most ubiquitous trade) from
"something that software engineers do when they move fast and break
things" to "a tool that can create profound societal change that
must be used as a force for liberation".
Before I started my research in computing education, I was a
graduate student in Computer Architecture, working in Micheal
Bespoke Silicon Group
and Brandon Lucia's
Abstract Research Group before that.
I received my Bachelor's and
Master's in Electrical and Computer Engineering from
Carnegie Mellon University.
