I'm a graduate student and research assistant in the Macro Connections group at the MIT Media Lab. I come from a mixed computer science and history background, holding a B.S. in the former and an M.A. in the latter.
In the past I worked at Harvard Business School as a Programmer and Technologist in the Research Computing Services group. Before moving to Boston I was a Research Staff Member in the Storage Systems group at IBM Research in Haifa, Israel. At IBM I researched and developed solutions for long-term digital preservation and cloud storage. Prior to IBM and my undergrad, I worked in the Computed Tomography division at Philips Medical Systems as Software Testing Team Leader of the Brilliance 16 CAT scanner and as Software Testing Developer.
My current interests are network science, data analysis, and natural language processing; I hope to combine my two passions, computer science and history, in my upcoming projects.
