about


I am a PhD Candidate in Human-Centered Computing at Georgia Tech. I have been embedded in grassroots social movements in the United States—both as a researcher and as an activist—for the last three years. My work focuses on studying how grassroots social movements in the United States use technology, and making tools for and with them. Particularly, I am invested in understanding how the use of information technology has complex classed, racial, and gendered consequences in a grassroots community.

In my past life, I have been a web developer, a free/open source enthusiast and an activist. Formerly worked at the Wikimedia Foundation – the non-profit organization that operates Wikipedia and its sister sites – as a Software Engineer for a little over two years, and have been a volunteer developer to MediaWiki for longer.
