Undergraduate Institution and Major: University of Maryland, Government & Politics 

Area of focus in CCT: Tech policy and ethics

What did you do before CCT? I worked in communications and marketing for an international development non-profit. 

Why did you choose CCT? I appreciated CCT’s inter-disciplinary approach to understanding the social, political, and economic implications of emerging technologies. I wanted to be able to think about and analyze these issues in a holistic way, incorporating approaches from various fields and traditions.

What surprised you about CCT?  The range of student interests and pursuits, while still grounded in CCT’s core areas of study, is really broad. This means you are always learning from your peers

What are you doing now? I am a Policy Associate with the Center on Privacy & Technology, a research institute at the Georgetown Law Center. I work on research around law enforcement’s use of face recognition technology, the surveillance of immigrants, and other issues related to the disparate impact of surveillance policies on vulnerable populations.
