I am a PhD candidate in computer science at UMass Amherst working in the Statistical Social Language Analysis Lab, advised by Brendan O’Connor. I am interested in developing fair, robust statistical text analysis tools to answer social science, particularly sociolinguistic, questions. Currently, I am working on developing models to identify dialectal variation on social media.
I am supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I received my B.A. in mathematics from Wellesley College.
