I frequently write about and advocate for internet rights such as net neutrality and privacy. This is part of my broader interest in the intersection of technology, public policy, and society.
Net neutrality advocacy
Having been involved in various net neutrality communities for over a year, WBUR's Endless Thread podcast interviewed me regarding that subject. The episode above, released June 15, 2018, features my commentary on the history of internet rights movements, arguments against net neutrality, fraud during the 2017 comment process, and public complacency.
How the upcoming repeal of net neutrality will lead to significant negative consequences for America's democracy.

Weston APCS YouTube Channel (September 2018-June 2019)
Video lessons that supplement the AP Computer Science curriculum at Weston High School. At WHS, many students are unable to take AP Computer Science as early as they would like due to scheduling conflicts, and many others need additional material to master programming concepts in the course. This project was born out of an intention to help those students, and we also hope that this could help students at different schools taking the course and the exam.
