I am a PhD student in the computer science department at the university of Maryland. I am a member of the computational linguistics and information processing (CLIP) lab. I am working with Prof. Jordan Boyd-Graber on question answering and relation extraction. I spent summer 2017 doing an internship at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2). I received an IBM Ph.D. Fellowship in 2017.

Previously, I worked on scaling machine learning algorithms with a "systems flavor". I did an internship at IBM Almaden lab in summer 2015 where, in collaboration with awesome IBM researchers, we introduced compressed linear algebra for large-scale machine learning.
