Senior Thesis on Wikipedia [2021]

To complete my double major in the History of Science and Philosophy, I had to write a senior thesis that integrated the two fields. I chose to write about Wikipedia, focusing on how its editor community decides what is and is not notable enough to warrant inclusion on the site. I read about the history of Wikipedia and its policies, interviewed Wikipedia contributors and critics, and analyzed what I found through historical and philosophical lenses.

Mesopotamian Screenplay [2021]

Towards the end of my time at Harvard, I became really interested in deep human history. So, when I took a screenwriting class in my final semester, I decided to write a short screenplay set in 4000 BCE. In it, a group of hunter-gatherers must decide whether or not to join a settled agricultural society.

Research Trip to the Kennedy Space Center [2019]

Harvard's History of Science department offers a research travel grant to rising juniors. I used the grant to go to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where I examined the Visitor Center's exhibits and interviewed employees to analyze how NASA communicates its research and goals to the public. (My visit also aligned with the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing.) From my trip, I wrote three posts for the History of Science department's blog.

Night of Scenes Script [2017]

Every winter, my high school's drama society hosts a "night of scenes." Senior year, I wrote a scene which reflected back on my four years of high school. In it, my freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior selves discourse with one another, and offer some advice to eighth-grade me.

Original Oratories [2014 -17]

I did speech and debate throughout all four years of high school. My focus was on "original oratory," a speech event where you must deliver a ten-minute, memorized speech on any non-fiction subject of your choosing. I wrote six OOs in total. (It turns out that I was better at delivering unscripted speeches, though; I ranked first in Pennsylvania for impromptu speaking in 2017.)
