I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Queens College (CUNY) and a member of the Doctoral Faculty of the Computer Science and Linguistics programs at the CUNY Graduate Center. My research area is Computational Linguistics/Natural Language Processing. I am particularly interested in machine learning approaches to understanding human language, developing educational applications, and social media data analytics. Previously, I was a faculty member in the Computer Science Department at Virginia Tech. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Computational Learning Systems at Columbia University. I completed my Ph.D. in Computational Linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I was advised by Prof. Dan Roth.
