Curriculum Vitae: [PDF]

I am a 5th-year PhD candidate at Carnegie Mellon, in the Societal Computing Program. I am fortunate to be advised by Lorrie Cranor and to receive additional guidance from Julie Downs in the Social and Decision Sciences department. I am also a member of CUPS Lab within CyLab at CMU.

I research usable privacy, particularly how families with teenaged children negotiate teens' privacy and online safety. I am broadly interested in studying how to make online privacy inclusive of marginalized and under-researched populations.

I received an undergraduate degree with a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics at Oberlin College in May of 2013. I was advised by Benjamin Kuperman and Tom Wexler in Computer Science, and Kevin Woods in Mathematics.
