Hello!

I'm Alicia DeVos. Currently I'm a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University's Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) advised by Motahhare Eslami & Ken Holstein. My work explores ways to reduce harm by shifting power to those who use & are most affected by algorithmic systems.

Previously I worked at Noom & at Dow Jones, where I focused on growth through digital product experiments in the form of A/B & multivariate tests. Before that, I graduated from Brown University with a computer science degree (though I also completed significant writing coursework).

I like to run & read for fun, but not simultaneously. My free time is spent watching musicals, eating ice cream, and figuring out how to pronounce "apropos". My favorite color is red, my favorite software application is InDesign, & my favorite punctuation marks are the en dash and the interrobang.
