Hi! I am a MSc. Student in Computing Science at the University of Alberta working with Dr. Alona Fyshe in the Representations Lab. My research interests are Natural Language Processing (NLP), and more specifically computational social science, semantics, emotions in language, and low-resource NLP. I am also interested in the crossfields between NLP and psychology, which inspired my exploration into these areas.
I completed my BSc. Honors with Distinction in Computing Science at the University of Alberta, where I worked with Dr. Alona Fyshe, and Dr. Carrie Demmans Epp in the EdTeKLA Research Group. I worked on research projects in various areas of NLP such as machine translation, trained classifiers on a dataset of tweets, created a corpus of language resources, and built language models to help understand the reading processes of native and non-native English speakers.
In my spare time I like to spend time outdoors, go hiking, and bake desserts!
