Bio

Fueled by a passion for leveraging technology for social good, I'm on a mission to break into the realm of human-oriented technology by blending my background in Computer Science with insights from Sociology. My goal is to revolutionize social media development by harnessing culturally integrative algorithms that transcend traditional boundaries, connecting individuals, cultures, "and" ideas that might otherwise remain isolated. Drawing from my offbeat social identity "and" interdisciplinary expertise, I strive to foster inclusive online spaces that celebrate diversity, promote understanding, "and" drive positive societal change.
