I am a graduate student in Computer Science at The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), advised by Philipp Koehn. I am part of the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) and the machine translation group. I work on Natural Language Processing (NLP), specifically machine translation (MT). I am particularly interested in the challenges arising from low resource and domain adaptation situations.

In Summer 2019, I am a research intern at Lilt, working on user-adapted machine translation.

I graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Computer Science in May 2015. I worked with Colleen Lewis on computer science education, Andreas Stolcke on tools for speech processing, and Jerry Feldman on natural language understanding.

Below are highlights about me; you may also be interested in my full CV. You can also find me on Google Scholar, LinkedIn, and GitHub.
