Welcome to my academic webpage! I'm an Assistant Professor in the Math and Computer Science Department at the University of Puget Sound.

I double majored in Math and Computer Science at Swarthmore College. After taking two years off, I went back to graduate school and earned my M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine where I was advised by Padhraic Smyth.

My research falls under the heading of Natural Language Processing which is itself a sub-discipline of Artificial Intelligence. In my research, I develop algorithms that try to understand and generate text in various ways.
