“I want to make technology more accessible and create more opportunities for the world."

Persistence and a strong technical background are traits that have helped Riley succeed in her career as a software engineer. She confronted and solved all of the professional challenges that came her way. Her experience as an blockchain engineer made her wonder how technology and society shape each other, and what should people do about that. That experience also lit a passion in Riley for using emerging technologies to create positive social impact. With patience and smart strategies, she believes she and her MITidm collaborators will be the trailblazers of innovation. Riley has a Bachelor of Arts in Cognitive Science from the University of California at Berkeley.
