Hi! I'm Erika, and I'm a Master's student at UMD. I am in the combined BS/MS program, and this is my sixth year at the university.
My interests lie in two places: the theoretical side of computer science and the hardness of various computational problems, as well as the ethical and social impacts of human interactions with technology. My ultimate goal would be to work in the intersection of these spaces: devising optimal algorithms for maximizing fairness and social good within a market or a mechanism, and assessing the effectiveness or fairness of model implementations through rigorous analysis.
