I’m a research scientist at the HLTCOE working on natural language processing. My primary research interests are in information extraction and representation learning, with an emphasis on applications to social media and other informal domains. I received my PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 2015 advised by Jason Eisner and Mark Dredze, where I was affiliated with the Center for Language and Speech Processing. Before that, I was an associate scientist at BBN Technologies where I primarily worked on speech recognition. I received a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Computer Science from Virginia Tech. I speak French fluently and know some German, having grown up in the wonderful city of Geneva, Switzerland.
