hi my name is jackie!
I'm a soon-to-be-graduating senior at MIT studying computer science and design. I make things out of (but not limited to) paint, code, and tears.
Recently I was a product design intern at Girls Who Code, working on tools to help girls become interested in pursuing computer science. I've also been a web engineering intern at Formlabs and an undergrad researcher in the MIT Media Lab.
I love exploring the blurry intersection of art and technology, and am particularly interested in themes of human intimacy, personal expression, and social change. I'd say my high-level goal for my work - in design, art, and programming - is to reclaim tech culture as a space for softness, sensitivity, and empowerment.
