Her background in art history and literature, along with over 7 years of experience in the editorial field, has provided her with a unique perspective on the intersection of technology and the humanities. During her work in Digital Art History, she has developed a keen interest in the relationship between the humanities and Artificial Intelligence, particularly in areas such as computer vision, image processing, generative media and images, as well as the ethics and social, political, and cultural implications of AI. She is currently pursuing a Master of Information and Data Science at the University of California, Berkeley.
