I earned my PhD in Information Science from Cornell University, where I was advised by David Mimno. I have a master’s degree in Computational Linguistics from the University of Washington and have worked as a research intern at places like Microsoft Research FATE, Twitter Cortex, Facebook Core Data Science, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. I’ve been recognized as a “Rising Star” in both computer science and data science.

I designed and taught NLP for Cultural Analytics for the Linguistics department at the University of Washington in Winter 2023.
I’m one of the lead organizers for AI for Humanists, a series of tutorials and workshops that guide interdisciplinary researchers in using large language models. In addition to our independent tutorials, I’ve led or co-led sessions at ICWSM, FAccT, Bell Labs, and the popular NLP+CSS 201 tutorial series. I’ve also taught similar public-facing courses for the Hertie School in Berlin, the Brown Institute at Columbia, and the IDEAS Summer School at Northeastern.
I’m the lead builder and maintainer for some cultural analytics tools:
