I am a fourth-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Johns Hopkins University, advised by Dr. Benjamin Van Durme. I am researching fairness in natural language processing, focusing on the impacts of complex representations of gender. I previously worked on end-to-end topic modeling, relaxing common assumptions to facilitate expert and non-expert usage. From the summer of 2011 through the summer of 2013 I worked at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where I applied natural language processing to social media and cyber data and implemented task-driven dictionary learning in a parallelized parameter search framework. In 2011 I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from Harvey Mudd College, where I concentrated on applied mathematics and statistics.
