Doctorate, 2018+ (Brown) - Natural Language Understanding

I am pursuing my PhD at Brown University (2018) working with Professor Pavlick.

Masters, 2017-18 (WPI) - Natural Language Understanding

Working with my master thesis advisor Professor Whitehill we developed machine learning models to find (extract) evidence for claims made in academic papers.

Undergraduate, 2016-18 (WPI) - Time Series Analysis

We developed a series of theoretical frameworks for time series analysis and search. We further implemented efficient systems demonstrating these concepts
