I am a second-year student in the Computer Science PhD program at Cornell University / Cornell Tech, based in New York City. I am advised by Yoav Artzi as part of the CLIC Lab. I study natural language processing. I'm specifically interested in understanding semantics and pragmatics, including grounding language in complex environments and conversations. I am a GTA for CS 5740 in Spring 2018.

I'm originally from Athens, Ohio. Before coming to Cornell, I received my BS from Ohio State University. http://pronoun.is/she.
