About me

Hello! I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at Georgetown University located in Washington, DC. I am working with Prof. Lisa Singh on Data-Efficient Learning and NLP.

Most of my projects are collaborations with CNN, Washington Post, UMich and MDI on leveraging AI/ML methods for data-centric social concerns such as sentiment analysis, misinformation, fake news, force-migration, spam.
