Hi! I am a third-year PhD student in Computer Science at Columbia University, advised by David Blei. My current research interests are primarily in Natural Language Processing and working with text data.

Previously, I did an undergrad/master’s concurrently at Penn and did research in Chris Callison-Burch’s lab. I also spent a summer at Columbia Business School working with Andrey Simonov.
