My research addresses real-life problems in communities with principled quantitative methods. My main interest is developing models that are not only accurate but also actionable. I focus on educational applications, and I currently work as a research scientist at Pearson's School Research Innovation Network.
My work has been recognized in the scientific and popular literature. For example, I have been nominated for best paper awards in the International Educational Data Mining and the Special Interest Group of Dialogue Systems conferences. I also have presented in Artificial Intelligence & Statistics , an honor for only 6% of the submissions (out of 400+ submissions). I am the happy first-prize winner of a 350+ international team data mining competition, predicting sudden traffic changes .
