I am a third year PhD student at Columbia University, working with Prof. Kathy McKeown. I am interested in Natural Language Processing and have been working on projects broadly related to relation extraction, stance detection, and semantics (e.g., connotations).
Before coming to Columbia, I was an undergraduate researcher at the University of Washington with Prof. Yejin Choi, working on commonsense knowledge. I majored in computer science and mathematics, with a minor in Ancient Greek.
As an undergraduate student, I had wonderful graduate students as mentors and collaborators (Hannah Rashkin, Maarten Sap) and I am happy to work with dedicated undergraduate and masters students. Currently, I work with the following students:
In my spare time I like to travel, play music, and have recently started ballroom dancing.
