I am a rising senior computer science major, comparative women’s studies minor at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. My research interests include civic media, computer science education, computational social sciences, and data science. When I graduate, I will pursue my Ph.D. When I’m not researching, I am dancing with friends, watching Netflix, or taking pictures with flowers in my hair.
