I am a first-year PhD student in Computational Linguistics at the University of Washington. I recently finished a Masters at the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was co-advised by Alan Black and Yulia Tsvetkov. Before any graduate studies, I spent 1 year at SRI International, working in their Speech Technology and Research Lab. Prior to that, I graduated from Wellesley College in 2016, where I studied Cognitive & Linguistic Sciences with a concentration in Computer Science.
Generally, I am interested in multilingual NLP and speech processing, low-resource language technology, non-native speech usage, code-switching, and linguistic typology. My recent research involves investigating entrainment in code-switched dialogues, and I am supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
When I’m not working, I like to cook, dance, take photos of handmade felted animals, and read the latest novels by my talented friend, Valentino Mori. Once upon a time, I did taekwondo and rowing for sport.
