I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University (2013-present). Previously, I was a Ph.D. student based in the Department of Government in the area of Methods and Formal Theory (2010-2013). I have a M.A. from Stanford University (2010) and a B.A. from Northwestern University (2006).

I spent the summer of 2012 with Jonathan Yedidia's group at Disney Research, Boston, and I spent the summer of 2013 with Mercè Crosas's group at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University.

I completed additional language training in Beijing (PIB), Taipei (ICLP), Yokohama (IUC), and the United States at Cornell University (FALCON).

I gratefully acknowledge current and past funding for my graduate studies and research from Harvard University, the Mitsubishi UFJ Foundation, the US Department of Education, a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship, and Stanford University.
