I came to media by way of Silicon Valley. Whether I am interviewing the CEO of a tech startup about their product mechanics and business strategy 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 and cover the sticky ethical questions 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, covering the future of cities, experimenting with chatbots, and building machine learning models.
My writing has also appeared in Mother Jones, Sierra, Grist, How We Get To Next, New Republic, 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 work to advance campus sustainability, conducted research at the MIT Media Lab, and sang in a cappella.
