I recently finished my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania where I studied natural language processing (NLP) with Chris Callison-Burch. I was generously supported by the Google Ph.D. Fellowship and the AI2 Key Scientific Challenges award. I was also affiliated with the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Before deciding to research NLP full-time, I spent several years as an end user of NLP-powered technologies in the U.S. Navy and at HelloWallet. My other degrees are from the U.S. Naval Academy, Royal Holloway, and Oxford University.
