I am currently a graduate student in Macro Connections at MIT Media Lab. My research interests focus on utilizing digital data to create visual platforms for understanding social phenomena and informing decisions that affect innovation, business, and public policy. My work has been featured in NYTimes Magazine, Scientific American, MIT Tech Review, Fast Company, and flowingdata.
Previously, I was a research associate in the Entrepreneurial Management unit at Harvard Business School and a consultant at Synthosys, where I worked with the National Science Foundation on the STAR METRICS initiative. I also worked on author disambiguation of the USPTO patent inventor database as a research affiliate of the Harvard Institute of Quantitative Social Science and a research associate in the Technology and Operations Management unit at HBS. Before HBS, I was an analyst in the Index, Portfolio and Risk Solutions group within Global Research at Barclays Capital. I graduated from the Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology at the University of Pennsylvania, receiving undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Economics with concentrations in Finance and Operations and Information Management.
I am passionate about food and running. I am a member of the Park Slope Food Coop in Brooklyn, New York and ran my first marathon at the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. I recently designed and planned my own wedding in Cambridge, Massachusetts and I enjoy working on projects that challenge me technically and creatively.
