about me

Currently, I'm working with a great team over at The Engine Room as the Associate for Digital Resilience and Emerging Technology. The Engine Room helps activists, organisations, and other social change agents make the most of data and technology in order to increase their impact. I'm also currently a Web Foundation Fellow, investigating the uses of GIS as well as analyzing the ethical and security risks associated with its use.

For a few years, I also taught Metrics & Data Visualization at SVA and was co-founder at Pueblo CoLab - a collaborative that creates tech and data processes for the social sector. Prior to that, I worked at various organisations on topics as varied as tackling youth unemployment through climate entrepreneurship, immigrant rights, and nutrition/international health.

I have a Bachelors degree in International Relations from Boston University and an MPA from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing capoeira, swimming, puzzle type things, hoarding books, tracing my family history, playing around with embedded systems, and saying hello to all the dogs.
