Area of focus in CCT: Tech Policy, Empathy & Technology, and Political Socialization.

What did you do before CCT? I worked on digital campaigns and programs at a global human rights organization that addressed gender-based violence and immigrant rights.

What activities do you participate in at CCT? I’m a student consultant on the Georgetown Honor Council, a peer-reviewer for the gnovis journal, and I’ve attended a couple of CCT Tech Tours. I also work at the front desk in the CCT lounge.

Why did you choose CCT? CCT stood out to me because the other programs I was looking at seemed to focus on the relationship between media–TV and film specifically–and culture, whereas CCT has much more emphasis on the relationship between technology and society. Given my interest in tech policy, studying in the heart of D.C. just made sense!

What surprised you about CCT? I came from a large undergraduate institution where you weren’t necessary able to get to know your professors well. My experience within CCT so far has been the exact opposite of this. Your professors take notice of your interests and are always available to support you academically or help you explore new career paths. It’s an incredible community with an impressive and well-connected faculty.
