Hey there!

I am a second-year Ph.D. student (currently on a one year break) studying Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under Dr. Jana Diesner. My interests span creating tools for social good and impact using technology. I am the creator of Fakey (a news literacy game) and am currently a full-stack developer at 4castersports (prediction market startup). I am also working on a social enterprise called Schedule Buddy, which is an AI-powered scheduling system that can empower people to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives while also in-tune with improving the world through micro-actions (a fiduciary for the people and the planet). In the past, I have worked on Hoaxy (a misinformation visualization tool), link prediction on knowledge networks, graph counting, and some IT consulting work.
