I am a third-year PhD student in the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge where I work under the supervision of Cecilia Mascolo. I work on spatio-temporal urban mobility modelling using social media and transport data. I am a member of Jesus College and a Gates Cambridge Scholar.
As an undergraduate at the University of Washington I received a double degree in Bioengineering and Computer Engineering and worked in three research labs. Advised by Joan Sanders, Brian Hafner, and John Cagle, I worked for two years designing devices to improve prosthetic socket fit for individuals with lower limb amputations. For the following two years, I worked in the Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICTD) lab building technology for low resource settings. I was advised by Gaetano Borriello and Nicki Dell. In my final year, I worked with Luis Ceze and Karin Strauss researching ways to use DNA molecules for long-term data storage.
In the summer of 2014, I interned at Microsoft Research India on the Technology for Emerging Markets team building a mobile application for CGNet Swara. In 2015, I interned at Google Mountain View on the Android infrastructure team and in 2016 I interned at Google London on the Chrome for Android team. In the summer of 2018, I worked at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Jakarta, Indonesia as a Data Science Fellow in the Global Pulse Lab.
