Biography

I am a 2nd-year M.S. student in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. I work with Doug Oard in the CLIP lab. I also work with Matt Post at the HLTCOE at Johns Hopkins University. My research interests are primarily in natural language processing and extend to artificial intelligence and lingustics. I am interested particularly in multi-/cross-linguality and second-language acquisition. Recently, I have been working on projects in machine translation evaluation, speech translation, and information retrieval. I plan to begin a Ph.D. program in Fall 2021.
