Currently, I am a Frederick Douglas Distinguished Scholar at American University, where I am majoring in Computer Science and pursuing dual minors in Sociology and Entrepreneurship. In light of my studies, I am of interested in how social implications are built into technology through technical decision-making, and developing methods to identify and alter underlying values in technology through critical technical practice. In my free time I enjoy traveling, and reading.
