Amanda Baughan

Hello! I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I'm currently working part time as a UX Researcher at AI2, working on Semantic Scholar. Previously, I spent two years working at Google where I spent my 20% time working on UX Research projects in the Allo and Google Cloud teams.

Broadly, I am interested in HCI, data science, and entrepreneurship. I am interested in how technology can make people's lives better, and how to reduce bias online.

When not working, you can find me in a yoga studio, attending startup talks, or exploring the PNW.
