I am a computational social scientist studying how to make the internet safer. I primarily conduct research to conceptualize and measure harm, and to build the foundational technologies that enable effective harm detection and mitigation at scale. I employ both qualitative and quantitative methodologies in my research to inform product execution and policy development in trust and safety domains, with an overall goal to minimize harm such as violence, hate, and terrorist propaganda.

I earned my Ph.D. in Information Science from the University of Colorado Boulder. I also have broader research interests in online communities, social media, social computing, and human-computer interaction (HCI).
