My research bridges Social Computing and Natural Language Processing.

I'm interested in drawing insights and developing algorithms for a deeper language understanding that involves the meaning of texts and the behaviors of people in online media. Specifically, I have focused on three areas: (1) analyzing semantics for intention understanding, (2) modeling social roles and relations, and (3) building interventions to facilitate social interaction.

I am very lucky to be co-advised by Robert E. Kraut and Eduard Hovy. Currently, I am supported by a Facebook Fellowship.
