I am a Research Fellow in the Computational Health Informatics Program at Harvard Medical School. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Computational Linguistics and Information Processing (CLIP) lab at the University of Maryland, College Park. My general research interest is in developing linguistically-aware and cognitively-motivated machine learning (ML) algorithms for prototypical problems that arise in the context of language processing. I'm interested in applying my research to problems in biomedical informatics and business intelligence. I have investigated and contributed to major NLP tasks centering on sentiment and semantic aspects of human language, and ML tasks centering on effective and efficient learning. Read more here.

Here is my CV.
