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 demystify the field’s latest news and research and examine the sticky ethical issues and social impacts of the technology. In 2018, my weekly newsletter, The Algorithm, was named one of the best newsletters on the internet by The Webby Awards.
Prior to TR, I spanned the editorial and product teams at Quartz as a tech reporter and its first data scientist. I covered the future of cities, helped build a Westworld chatbot, and prototyped 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. In my spare time, I founded an environmentally-conscious fashion show, earned the highest student leadership award for my campus sustainability work, and sang in a cappella.
