I’m a third-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Stanford University in the Human-Computer Interaction Group.

My research is co-advised by James Landay in Computer Science and Jeff Hancock in Communication at Stanford; my PhD is supported by a Stanford Graduate Fellowship. I also help teach CS181: Computers, Ethics, and Public Policy.

My research focuses on bias and technology: identifying the ways cognitive and psychological biases at the individual level shape our interactions with technology, studying political bias in search results and the web as a whole, and designing solutions to mitigate that bias.

Before Stanford, I graduated from Brown University in 2015 with a dual concentration in Computer Science and Science, Technology, and Society, advised by Jeff Huang.

In case you’re wondering/struggling, my first name is pronounced like the verb “deny”.
