I’m a PhD student researching the future of media at Northwestern University, working with Professor Nick Diakopoulos in the Computational Journalism Lab. I graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in 2017 and am originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I’ve worked in audience development and analytics at Fusion Media Group, Digiday, Pacific Standard and the Dallas Morning News, where I used code, data and design to increase story and newsroom performance across platforms. I’ve written for Pacific Standard, the Christian Science Monitor, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and others.
