I am a member of the center for language and speech processing (CLSP) and the institute for data intensive engineering and science (IDIES). Prior to joining Johns Hopkins, I was a Research Assistant Professor at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), a post-doctoral scholar at TTIC (hosted by Karen Livescu), a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond (hosted by Ofer Dekel) and a research associate at the University of Washington (host: Maya Gupta) in Seattle. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009.
