Previously, I was a computer science graduate student at USC and a graduate student researcher at ISI where I worked with Professors Jonathan May and Nanyun Peng on machine translation and event relation extraction.
Before that, I studied computer science and math at the University of Bridgeport.
My research interests are in natural language processing and deep learning. Particularly, I am interested in multilingual NLP and language generation tasks such as machine translation and grammatical error correction.
