I’m a Staff Machine Learning Scientist at Glassdoor. Before that, I did my PhD in the Department of Linguistics at University of Maryland, where I was advised by Jeff Lidz and Norbert Hornstein (my dissertation can be found here). I was also a Language Science Fellow in University of Maryland’s Language Science Center. I still engage in some linguistics research, albeit at a much slower pace since I work in industry. For more information about my academic research, see my research page.

Outside of work and linguistics, I enjoy tinkering with computers as well as teaching others about computers. I’ve put together materials for a LaTeX workshop, loosely aimed at linguists, which I’ve taught several times. I’ve also put together materials for a git workshop, loosely aimed at scientists who do human subjects research, which I’ve taught once over the course of 7 weeks.

I also enjoy snowboarding, backpacking, and hiking. And I really like coffee. I worked as a barista, off-and-on, for a few years at the Dunn Bros at the Smith Douglas More House, now known as Smith.
