An enthusiast for data and social impact technology, I graduated with a BA in Psychology from Columbia University and am currently obtaining a MS degree in Data Analytics and Visualization with an advanced certificate in User Experience at Pratt Institute. I have worked as a Product Manager and a Strategy consultant in the FinTech industry and as a Partnership Manager in the EduTech industry prior to my journey in obtaining a MS degree.
This project discusses the development of an educational conversation agent supporting an initiative I developed called WESTAND, standing for We Emerge Stronger Together And Never Defenseless. The initiative and the agent serves to increase the accessibility of bystander intervention training–offered at no cost by some non-profit organizations but with limited capacity or in B2B settings.
