I am a PhD student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. My advisor is Noah Smith, and I am part of the Noah's ARK research group.[1]My term of venery is "a parliament of owls."

My research interests lie in the intersection of natural language processing and computational social science; I am particularly interested in modeling how ideas appear in and are transformed by the news.

My research is currently funded by a NSF Graduate Fellowship.

Before starting graduate school, I was a software engineer at Microsoft, where I worked on Skype for Business Server.[2]If you have ever had trouble joining a meeting using SfB, I'm sorry. I graduated with a BSE in Computer Science and Certificate in Finance from Princeton University in 2012.
