About

Hi! I am a Ph.D. student in JHU's Department of Computer Science and Center for Language and Speech Processing. I work with my advisor David Yarowsky on NLP across hundreds of languages, with a focus on low-resource languages.

I received a B.S. in computer science and B.A. in Latin from UT Austin, where I worked with my advisor Katrin Erk on computational semantics.
