I'm a first year PhD student at Princeton University studying computer science. I'm still fumbling around to find a research direction, but I'm interested in exploring fairness/interpretability in computer vision and the intersection of computer vision and cognitive science.

I completed my B.S. in computer science with a minor in cognitive science from UCLA in 2022. At UCLA, I was an undergraduate researcher in the UCLA Vision Lab where I worked under Dr. Stefano Soatto and with Dr. Alex Wong. I was also involved with the Society of Women Engineers @ UCLA where I led the Engineering For Humanity Research Symposium to make academic research more accessible to undergraduates.

I'm passionate about making academia more accessible to all students, regardless of background. If you have questions about research, navigating college, or thinking about grad school, please shoot me an email, I'd be more than happy to chat :)

I'm a huge travel nerd and I love to learn about different cultures especially through food. I love to cook, paint, read, go on hikes and rock climbing, and play Spikeball!
