I am a final-year Ph.D. Candidate of Computer Science at Georgetown University, on the academic job market! My research is in the area of natural language processing and I am specifically interested in computational semantics (across languages) and model evaluation practices. I am the recipient of a Clare Boothe Luce scholarship, which supports my research. I have previously worked as a Research Intern at Google, the University of Southern California, and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

In addition to research, I am passionate about teaching and mentorship. At Georgetown, I developed and taught a section of the Intro to Computer Science: Python course and I have also served as a Teaching Assistant for a variety of courses. 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. Recently, I served on the Executive Board of Georgetown University Women Coders. Check out my Bulletin and Media coverage for more information!
