I am a third year PhD student at JHU's Center for Language and Speech Processing working with Benjamin Van Durme. I'm interested in entity-level information, sentence representations, and noisy/web data. Specifically, I've been looking at the use and helpfulness of various kinds of context for understanding language.
I also enjoy writing and solving puzzles, biking, rock climbing, and playing (board, video, and social deduction) games.
