White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

At OSTP I interned in the office of the Chief Technology Officer and helped with the development of national policy for self-driving vehicles, drones, cybersecurity, and rural broadband. I advised the U.S. Deputy CTO through writing policy memos and pitching ideas at meetings. I also helped lead a cross-agency effort to produce a Congressionally mandated report on patents.
