Hi! I'm Theia (they/them or she/her). I'm a programmer and computational linguist. I'm currently working at SecureDNA, building a system to screen DNA synthesis orders for potentially hazardous material.

In my free time I enjoy knitting, listening to history podcasts, writing fiction and posts for my blog, and working on various side projects. My projects are a mix of compilers, natural language processing, games and game development tools, and contributions to miscellaneous open-source projects. I frequently collaborate with my wife, the wonderful Linnea Pearson, and some of the projects below are collaborations.
