I came to media via Silicon Valley. Whether I am interviewing a computer scientist about her latest research or pouring over data to find my next story, I have always thrived best at the intersection of storytelling and technology.
I am now the AI reporter at MIT Technology Review. I write a semi-weekly newsletter that demystifies the field’s latest news and research, and cover the sticky ethical issues and social impacts of the technology. Prior to that, I spanned the editorial and product teams at Quartz. As a tech reporter and its first data scientist, I covered the future of cities, experimented with chatbots, and built machine-learning models.
My writing has also appeared in Mother Jones, Sierra, New Republic, How We Get To Next, Grist, and other publications. In a past life, I was an application engineer at a Google X urban sustainability spinoff.
I graduated from MIT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and minor in Energy Studies. There, I founded an environmentally-conscious fashion show, earned the highest undergraduate student leadership award for my campus sustainability work, conducted research at the MIT Media Lab, and sang in a cappella.
