I have a background in neuroscience, studying vision in autism. I now work as a research engineer in machine learning. My work focuses on applied AI for human rights monitoring and accountability. I am based in the AI for Good team at Element AI. I also research active learning, and work on interactive computing in the jupyter environment.
