I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Purdue University. I am working with Dan Goldwasser in the Purdue Natural Language Processing (NLP) group.
My research interests are connectionism inspired machine learning methods for natural language processing, more specifically, neural networks and probabilistic models. I am particularly interested in structural models that try to understand language as a structured cognitive representation.
Before I joined the CS department, I worked on HCI and neural networks, with Gregory Francis in Psychological Sciences at Purdue University, from where I obtained my master in psychology (Mathematical and Computational Cognitive Science concentrated). During that period, I received intensive quantitative and computational training, and also developped my interest in machine learning.
I am working as a TA for the Machine Learning for NLP course in the 2017 Fall semester.
