Oakland, CA


My interests lie in linguistics, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning, web development, and writing fantasy & fiction.

I program in Java, Python, PHP, Javascript, and HTML/CSS. I'm learning Swift.

I study theoretical linguistics, most recently through the lens of HPSG, usually looking at English language data, though I've also developed analyses of multilingual data.

My interests in NLP include coreference resolution and other semantic tasks, such as sentiment analysis, topic modeling, abstractive summarization, and paraphrasing, though my experience with the two latter is limited.

I primarily read and write fantasy, though I'm also interested in history, historical fiction, and biographies.
