I am currently studying artificial intelligence policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. My research interests include AI in the context of education, labor displacement, technology diffusion, and regulation.

Work: I most recently served as the Director of Research, Evaluation, and Planning at the Philadelphia Education Fund. In this capacity, I oversaw academic research, program evaluation and improvement, and policy across the Ed Fund's diverse programs and policy and research initiatives.

Education: I completed an MS at the University of Pennsylvania's school of Social Policy & Practice with a focus on Education Policy. Previously, I graduated Princeton University, majoring in Philosophy with a certificate in Values and Public Life and a focus on Robotics & Intelligent Systems and Artificial Intelligence. My work focused on machine consciousness and the ethics of AI.

Specialties: Strategic planning, program development, non-profit management, qualitative and quantitative research, program evaluation, policy analysis
