I'm a PhD student in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I'm advised by Edith Law, and am a member of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab. In the past, I've held research internships at both Microsoft Research and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Before joining Waterloo, I was a research scientist in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Oxford.

My research is at the intersection of curiosity, citizen science, and artificial intelligence. My research consolidates questions from each of these areas to better understand how we can get volunteers and crowd-workers more excited about and involved in participating in crowd-scale scientific research.

As a research scientist, I helped design and build a variety of computational tools for studying ancient manuscripts. These tools include Ancient Lives, Proteus, and Greek-BLAST.
