Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in political science at UC San Diego. I study repression and the politics of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
My dissertation examines:
1) how political institutions, such as censorship and propaganda, induce bias in AI
2) the implications of such bias for authoritarian politics
In other work, I study algorithmic fairness and its interactions with politics. My work is motivated by normative concerns about freedom and justice.
I received my MA from the University of Chicago and BA from UCLA. I was a research intern at Microsoft Research in Summer 2022. I am currently a CDDRL/HAI Fellow at Stanford University.
