I am a first year MS/PhD student at the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst. As part of the Knowledge Discovery Laboratory, I work with Prof. David Jensen. My research interests are in finding ways to understand and explain artificial intelligence, and using causal inference methods to understand complex systems.
During my undergrad, I did research in Program Synthesis using type theory, and in using natural language processing techniques to exampine mental health in online disscussion forums.
Outside of academics I enjoy reading, running, and swing and contra dancing.
