I'm a Master's student at UC Berkeley studying Information Management and Systems (MIMS) with a concentration in Data Science. I'm passionate about applying machine learning methods to solve problems involving large amounts of textual data. I am currently a Teaching Assistant for Berkeley's Natural Language Processing course taught by David Bamman.

Prior to grad school, I worked as a Back-End Software Engineer at Brightspot for 2 years. I architected the data pipelines and content solutions for clients like Mattress Firm and Janes. I gained robust experience modeling data, integrating and writing APIs, and collaborating across different teams with client stakeholders.

In undergrad, I double-majored in Computer Science and English at The University of Virginia and graduated with High Honors. My thesis project, A Digital Analysis of the Lyrical Novel, was advised by Brad Pasanek. Other involvements at UVA include earning a Research Assistant position at The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) and assisting with Brad's Puzzle Poetry project.

Academic projects like my ongoing, quantitative analysis of details in the novel, plus other personal projects like a language model trained on Supreme Court data, can be found in the Projects section. Check out the Blog for informal updates and experiments.

This summer, I'll be a Graduate Data Science Intern with Red Ventures. I'm scaling ML solutions across their organization and gaining insights from their clients' vast troves of textual data.
