Shira Wein About Me

About Me

I am a second-year Ph.D. student of Computer Science at Georgetown University. I am a member of the NERT research lab, where I work on natural language processing. My research interests include semantic representations, word embeddings, and L2 corpus linguistics. Nathan Schneider is my advisor. Previously I have interned at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

In addition to research, I am passionate about teaching and mentorship. During the 2020-2021 academic year, I am serving on the Executive Board of guWeCode (Georgetown University Women Coders). At Lafayette College, where I received a B.S. in Computer Science and B.A. in Spanish, I took on a leadership role to promote the empowerment and inclusion of underrepresented groups in STEM.
