About Me

Hi! I’m Myra. I’m in my final year of undergrad at Caltech, where I study computer science and history. I worked at Microsoft Research, where I investigated the limitations of algorithmic fairness techniques, and DeepMind, where I studied biases in large language models. I also started TechReach at Caltech to explore the human and social impacts of technology.
