Hi! I'm Jocelyn, a Master's student at the MIT Media Lab's Personal Robots Group. I graduated from MIT in 2021 with a degree in Computer Science alongisde a minor in Economics. My research interests are in human robot interaction, behavioral science, and AI ethics. In the past, I've worked at Facebook (Software Engineering Intern), Citadel (Software Engineering Intern), and Affectiva (Data Science Intern). I hope my research can be used to improve personalization, educational technology and learning outcomes, and ultimately contribute to greater equality in education. Aside from my academic work, I like to sketch characters and write anything ranging from poems to essays to novels. Check out the other pages on this site to learn more!
