Hi, I'm a language nerd based in Brooklyn.
I’m a software engineer on the localization team at Shutterstock, helping the site run smoothly and multilingually, and working on projects to improve user experience across languages.
Previously, I was doing research on machine translation and language processing for low-resource languages advised by Jaime Carbonell and Graham Neubig in the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
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 also worked as a data scientist at People Pattern, building odds and ends for demographics classification and sentiment analysis.
