I am a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Language Technologies Institute working with Ken Koedinger and Carolyn Rosé. I also participate in the Program for Interdisciplinary Education Research at CMU.
I am interested in problems relating to natural language processing and education. My current research is on incorporating natural language into a cognitive tutor that inductively learns how to solve problems. This work aims to help authors build better tutors in less time and to facilitate more natural interactions with the agent. I am also broadly interested in how peer tutors understand and adapt to their tutees' misconceptions and alternate conceptions. If you're interested in similar areas and want to chat, send me an email!
On the rare occasion I'm not at my computer and have some free time, I really enjoy bowling. I have my own ball and everything.
