I am entering my third year at UBC’s Allard School of Law (class of 2021). I hope to do work that gives more of us more confidence in the outcomes of the legal system and government decision-making in general. I’m also interested in the many overlaps of law and technology.
I was on the Gale Moot team, am the Senior Editor at the Canadian Journal of Family Law, and organize a reading group on Algorithmic Decision-Making and the Rule of Law.
I’m trained as a computer scientist. In that field, I’ve focused on visual object recognition, machine learning, and applications of deep neural networks.
