I am a Ph.D. student in the School of Computing and Information Science at Cornell Tech↗ where I am co-advised by Dr. Nicola Dell↗ and Dr. Aditya Vashistha↗. My research interests are in human-computer interaction (HCI), information and communication technologies for development (ICTD), and machine learning for social good (ML4SG). My research focus is on building and evaluating computing technologies that aim to improve the lives of marginalized and underserved populations. In particular, I am interested in community and in-home healthcare, mental health, climate resilience, and responsible artificial intelligence.Prior to attending Cornell, I received an M.S. in Computer Science from New York University↗ where I was a graduate research fellow at the Center for Responsible AI↗ and where I am currently a visiting research scholar under the supervision of Dr. Julia Stoyanovich↗. Before academia, I worked as a software engineer for various New York City technology startups. Some of my most recent work includes creating open-source software to make robots for biologists↗ and writing software to help build educators into entrepreneurs↗. Outside of academic activities, I am an avid Muay Thai practitioner, I enjoy reading (specifically about politics, race, technology, economics, climate justice, and Puerto Rican/Latinx studies), and love to cook — plus I have been known to eat.
