As a computer scientist, I study ways in which to protect users from malicious activity online via social networks. Outside of my research, I enjoy broadening participation in computing by volunteering to teach what I hope will be the next generation of computer scientists.

If I can change what the perception of a woman in STEM looks like then other women will know they belong here too.
