👋 Hey there

I'm a UX designer with writing and research skills.  I'm currently working at ByteLearn, an EdTech startup building an AI powered math teaching assistant. Past jobs include working with the Amazon Research Center at Columbia University where I researched on how to design better voice UX interactions for Alexa devices. I'm interested in designing for social good, with a specific focus on how we can use human centered design methods and emerging technologies to create better communities.

I study Sociology and Psychology at Barnard College, Columbia University and took a gap year in 2020 to work at startups. As of 2022, I have 2 years of startup UX work experience. I am curious about the intersection of society and technology and am wrote my senior thesis on Algorithmic Bias.

Apart from design, I have a deep appreciation for the art of storytelling.  After hours, you can catch me performing spoken word poetry at open mic nights, writing blog posts on Medium or scribbling in my journal. I also host a podcast on culture and philosophy with my best friend, a Mechanical Engineer. I am always down to discuss technology trends, books on travel and culture and films!
