Bio

I am a PhD student at Northumbria Social Computing Lab (NorSC) and Connected Experience Lab (CXL). My research mainly focuses on designing and building technology telepresence probes to expose problematic sides of┬ápet tech and to increase human understanding of dogs’ otherness. I am also interested in human-animal relations and privacy.

Before Northumbria, I was a data scientist at an e-commerce company where I built various successful models that predicted churn, optimised search rank, and ranked prospective customers. I also was a research assistant at Northeastern University in Boston, MA (USA) at a social network systems lab, where I worked on projects looking at the evolution of Twitter, Facebook ads, web personalisation and filter bubbles, and preventing the impact of malicious accounts on social networks.

In my spare time, I love coffee, reading, watching horror movies, and obviously my pets.
