if you want to ask or talk about research / research mentoring, feel free to reach out :) beyond supervising several undergraduate research assistants over the years, my past teaching includes:
I received my BA from Cornell University, where I double-majored in Government and Information Science. I focused on revolutions and ideology in the former and data science + ethics in the latter — a kind of weird mix that brought me to where I am now. As an undergrad, I was fortunate to work with a variety of folks: the NYSWRI, the Get Your Green Back Tompkins campaign, and Dr. Victor Nee over at the Center for the Study of Economy and Society. Between Cornell and Northwestern, I was an Emma Bowen Foundation Summer Fellow at Reveal / Center for Investigative Reporting on the Audience Team.
My lab hosted a Q&A for people on November 5, 2021. Part of that included an FAQ we pulled together of "not-so-obvious" things about graduate school. While it doesn't say much about graduate school applications, I think it covers some things about grad school that are helpful to think about as you apply. For questions about applications about graduate school, please feel free to ping me. I don't have a written out resource right now but I'm happy to chat with people.
Many other people have written better and wiser guides for applying to the NSF GRFP (Mallory Ladd and Alex Lang have very good guides/resources on the GRFP), the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program. But a few people have reached out about applying, so I'm writing down here some tips that I find myself repeating. Unfortunately, these are just based off of my own experience but hopefully it is helpful for anyone reading?
Some background: I received the 2020 Award in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering division; I applied in 2019 during the first quarter of my PhD program (in other words, my application was in the first year PhD student pool).general comments

still deciding what to put here, to be honest...
