who am I?

I am a human that likes to learn, teach, and create.

I'm currently a lecturer for Berkeley Computer Science, co-teaching CS61A and CS302.

In my past lives, I've...

  • Worked for Khan Academy, creating the computing curriculum and improving the live coding environment.
  • Started up the engineering team at Woebot, a friendly chatbot that teaches Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to help regulate your moods.
  • Attended a 4 month Tibetan Buddhism retreat to learn techniques for relaxation, meditation, and emotional transformation.
  • Founded the GirlDevelopIt SF chapter and created much of its CC-licensed curriculum.
  • Written oodles of code for Coursera, as its 2nd frontend engineer.
  • Worked in both Google Mountain View & Google Australia, doing developer relations for the Maps API and Wave APIs.
  • Been a bachelors & masters student in the USC Computer Science Department, with minors in 3d Animation + Linguistics.
want to contact me?
  • If you would like me to speak at a conference, please know that I say no to most requests, as I have a young daughter and a full-time job. I'm most likely to say yes to local events, events with younger audiences, and events where my partner is paid to attend with me.
  • If you'd like to report a bug or a feature request with the Khan Academy platform, please use KA ZenDesk.

If you're still keen on sending me a message after reading that, go for it! My gmail address is exactly what you'd expect it to be 😊.
