At Yale, she is a first-year counselor in Pauli Murray College, an undergraduate researcher at the Yale Stem Cell Center, the president of the Women's Leadership Initiative, and the AI Discussion Group leader for Yale Effective Altruists. Her interests lie at the intersection of science, technology, philosophy, and political theory. After graduating, she plans to pursue a Ph.D. in political theory and a J.D. in international law.
