I work at Microsoft Research as an applied scientist on decentralized social technology. My research interests are at the intersection of applied cryptography, machine learning, and political economics. I am also a technical advisor to product teams at Microsoft as it related to my research.
I previously did research in machine learning for health at the Vector Institute of Technology & MIT CSAIL under the advisory of Marzyeh Ghassemi as well as worked with Microsoft’s Health & AI team. Previously, I has also worked on building COVID-19 prevalence prediction tools advised by Geoffrey Hinton that operated in Canada and Somalia. I love to travel (at 50 countries so far), and have qualified for 3 age group world championship triathlons coached by Paula Findlay.
