I’m a fifth year Ph.D. candidate 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.

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, gender bias and other social inequalities in social networks, and designing solutions to mitigate that bias.

I am also a graduate fellow at the Stanford McCoy Center for Ethics in Society, and help teach CS181: Computers, Ethics, and Public Policy.

My first name is pronounced like the verb “deny”.
