Hi, I'm a data scientist / NLP researcher / language nerd based in Brookyln.
I'm a recent graduate from the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University advised by Jaime Carbonell (and Chris Dyer & Graham Neubig). At CMU I worked on machine translation, language processing for low-resource languages, and general machine learning wizardry.
I got my Bachelors in Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin working with Katrin Erk on lexical substitution and lexical translation using distributional semantic models. While in Austin, I worked as a data scientist at People Pattern, building odds and ends for demographics classification and sentiment analysis.
