"A good response to an RFP is like a love letter"

Hey! I'm Athena, junior studying computer science at Harvard, Managing Partner at Dorm Room Fund, and software consultant for vote.org.

I care a lot about making government services more effective. So far, I've:

  • started Coding it Forward (backed by Knight Foundation) to bring young technical talent to federal government agencies
  • helped build the City of Boston's open data hub
  • built software for the VA & US Digital Service (USDS)
  • co-facilitated a conference session with the Deputy Administrator of USDS

In the past, I worked on self-driving cars at Uber, changed my school system’s health policy from bottom third in the nation to “one of the very best,” presented research at an international NIH conference, opened up data at Harvard, and authored two papers in peer-reviewed journals.
