About Me

I’m a first-year PhD student at the University of Rochester in Computer Science. My research is in Natural Language Understanding and/or Computatinal Linguistics, with a focus on building ontologies and studying syntactic/semantic phenomena in natural language.

I work with James Allen. I am also involved in FACTS.lab’s MegaAttitude Project.
