I am currently a Research Fellow at the Natural Language Processing (NLP) lab at Harvard Medical School. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at 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 algorithms for prototypical problems that arise in the context of language processing and artificial intelligence. I have investigated and contributed to major NLP tasks centering on sentiment and semantic aspects of human language and, more recently, developed effective and efficient training paradigms for neural networks.
