About Me

I am currently a third year PhD student in computer science. My advisor is ChengXiang Zhai of the TIMAN group. I am interested in text mining and information retrieval, particularly in the area of health informatics. I received my bachelor’s degree from the California Institute of Technology in computer science. There, I worked closely with Shuki Bruck and Mani Chandy. I code 80% of my experiments in Python nowadays. I have guinea pigs.
