I am a Ph.D. Student at Stanford University, where I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Media Psychology under the supervision of Prof. Gabriella Harari. My research interests lie at the intersection of technology and personality; in the recently conceived discipline of psychoinformatics. I am interested in social media technologies, the reasons we use them and the effects they have on our minds. At large, I am interested in examining what technologies tell us about ourselves and the world we live in. Outside of research, I enjoy writing science fiction and ruminating on various philosophical debates relating to the mind.
