I study how language is processed both by the brain and by machines. To get closer to this goal, I work with my advisors - Tom Mitchell and Leila Wehbe - to investigate the representations in the brain as subjects read naturalistic text in neuroimaging devices (both fMRI and Magnetoencephalography), as well as the representations of the same text as it is passed through current natural language processing models. My research is supported by the NSF graduate fellowship.
