I'm working on detecting mental health symptoms from speech and text data using machine learning at the Senseable Intelligence Group (McGovern Institute for Brain Research, MIT & Harvard Medical School). As a RallyPoint Fellow and in collaboration with the Nock Lab (Harvard University), we are studying how to predict suicidal ideation on social media from users' prior posts and interactions using methods from machine learning and causal inference.
