I am a dual PhD student in Computer Science and Cognitive Science at Tufts University. My research is in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Machine Ethics. What makes us creative problem solvers? How do we design robots to be resourceful and creative? What are the legal, ethical and moral implications of clever robots?
On the side, I enjoy drawing cartoons. Some of my work can be seen on Legally Drawn, cartoons poking fun at law and lawyers.
I am also a licensed patent lawyer and practiced various aspects of Intellectual Property (IP) law at Ropes and Gray for nearly a decade. During this time, I helped inventors obtain patents for their ideas, and worked with companies and universities on developing strategies for strengthening, growing and transacting their IP portfolios. I have a J.D. from Boston University School of Law, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Arkansas.
