I'm a data scientist. I like discovering stories hidden in data, and then finding ways to make those stories useful to people. I really enjoy working on projects that have a positive social impact.
I earned my PhD in social psychology and computational science from Harvard University. My dissertation research leveraged machine learning, Natural Langauge Processing, and image analysis to predict changes in personal health based on shifts in social media activity. In general, I enjoy solving problems that involve understanding and predicting human behavior. Humans are funny creatures!
