Research Scientist


I am an applied AI researcher with experience in usable privacy and natural language processing. I am currently a Research Scientist at Google, working in the Applied Privacy Research Group. Before that, I was part of Amazon Alexa’s language understanding and generation team.

My portfolio includes Polisis, a system for visualizing privacy policies using machine learning, PriBot, a chatbot for automated question answering for privacy policies, an online wellbeing ML stack at Privately for assisting online children safety, and PrivySeal, an automated privacy assistant for installing cloud apps.
