I am a 4th year PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Maryland at College Park. I work on Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing with Jordan Boyd-Graber, and others in the CLIP lab. I am interested in knowledge grounded natural language understanding, question answering, few-shot learning, domain adaptation, and interpretability. I led the development of an AI that defeated some of the best Quiz Bowl players in the world. Visit qanta.org to learn more about our datasets, systems, and research.

This summer (2019) I am a research intern at Facebook AI Research and was a research intern at Microsoft Research - Information and Data Science Group Summer 2018. I was a data scientist at Zillow Group at Trulia (full time), Riot Games (intern), Oracle Datalogix (intern). I did summer research at UC Berkeley's AMPLab, UC Berkeley's Astronomy Department, and Boise State University's Cryosphere Group. I was the team captain and a founding member of the Colorado Data Science Team. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley in December 2014. I am a professional member of the American Avalanche Association, and member of the National Ski Patrol.

In my free time, I am an avid skier, climber, and hiker.
