I'm a dean's list junior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's college of Engineering, working towards my B.S. in Computer Science, with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction.

My interests include politics, the arts, local history, HCI, and Free/Open Source Software.

Human-Computer Interaction

In the summer of 2019, I was a research intern for Dr. Kurt Luther at Virginia Tech's Crowd Intelligence Lab. I helped Jacob Thebault-Spieker develop PairWise, a tool for reducing political bias in crowdsourced online content moderation.

At the 2019 AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing, I presented my work on PairWise and won the "Best Work-in-Progress / Demo" award.

Software Development

I try to make all of my programming projects available online, most of which can be found on GitLab.

Animation

Some people know me by my series of Scratch animations, Astro The Stickman. I made these between the ages of 11 and 13, and most of them are still available to view online.

My animations were featured in A Monkey and a Stick Figure: Stories of Remixing and Social Creativity, a presentation by Andrés Monroy-Hernández and Frances Yun, for the 2012 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work.
