Bio

I'm a PhD student in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I work with Edith Law, and am a member of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab. Before joining Waterloo, I was a research scientist in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Oxford, and spent two summers as a research intern in Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Biomedical Sciences and Engineering division.

My PhD work focuses on 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.
