Ryan Shi

I am a first-year PhD student in Societal Computing in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Fei Fang. Prior to CMU, I graduated from Swarthmore College with a B.A. in Mathematics and Computer Science. My CV can be found here.

Current research

I work on building AI for immediate and measurable social good.

A few exciting projects going on! Stay tuned, or shoot me an email at ryanshi[attt]cmu[dottt]edu!
