I am a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard University in the Department of History, studying modern European Intellectual History, and a graduate fellow at the Safra Center for Ethics for the 2019-2020 academic year.


In 2013-2014 I worked at Udemy, an education technology startup based in San Francisco.

In June 2013 I graduated from the University of Cambridge with an M.Phil. in European Literature and Culture.

In May 2012 I graduated from Brown University with an A.B. in Literary Arts and Computer Science.
