I am a software engineer in Meta’s Reliability Infra group, working on improving the reliability of Meta’s foundational infrastructure that powers Meta’s family of apps (Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, Threads, WhatsApp).

Previously, I was a software engineer at Amazon Web Services.
I was also a AAAS Mass Media fellow and wrote for *New Scientist*, *NPR*, *Quanta Magazine*, and other publications.

Before all that, I used to do math. (Are you perhaps looking for my blog post on The Hydra Game?)

I live in Brooklyn with a human and three cats. Every once in a while, I write and make music.

Talk to me, if you wish.
