  • Advanced Semantic Representation

(AUGUST 2015 – MAY 2019)

B.S. Computer Science; B.A. Spanish

I graduated from Lafayette magna cum laude with Honors in Computer Science and Spanish.

My Senior Honors Thesis in Computer Science and Spanish (‚ÄúSentiment Analysis on Translated Works: Explaining the Differences Between Linguistic Analysis of a Text and its Computational Sentiment”) was co-advised by Joann Ordille and Michelle Geoffrion-Vinci. For this work I earned Honors in both Computer Science and Spanish and was awarded the Barge Oratorical Prize, for the most skilled oral defense of an honors thesis that year.

At Lafayette, I served as the President of Women in Computing from 2017 to 2019 and President of Association for Computing Machinery from 2017 to 2018. While studying at Lafayette, I was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, Upsilon Pi Epsilon (Computer Science Honors Society), and Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish Honors Society).
