As of Fall 2014, I am leaving the PhD program to join the engineering team at DoorDash!
I am a PhD student in the Computer Science & Engineering department at the University of Washington, advised by Dan Weld. My primary research interests are in natural language processing and crowdsourcing; I have recently been working on relation extraction. I am a 2011 NSF Graduate Research Fellow.
I received my BS in Computer Science from Rice University, with a second major in Electrical Engineering. While at Rice, I worked with Devika Subramanian on Bayesian network structure learning applied to systems biology, as well as supervised classification of images of Barrett's esophagus.
