I am a first-year PhD student working at the University of Maryland’s Computational Linguistics and Information Processing lab, where I am advised by Philip Resnik. My (still nascent) research interests involve using interpretable unsupervised methods to study social and cultural phenomena as manifested in language.

Previously, I completed my master’s in computational statistics and machine learning at University College London, where my thesis advisors were Sebastian Riedel and Jeff Mitchell at the UCL NLP group. Before my return to academia, I was an economic consultant at The Brattle Group in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I developed an internal document retrieval platform, built econometric models, and did a lot of work that could be broadly classified as data science (I remain an avid evangelist of R’s tidyverse over python’s pandas).
