I am a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Language Technologies Institute working with Carolyn Rosé and Ken Koedinger. I am also a fellow in the Program for Interdisciplinary Education Research at CMU.

I am interested in problems relating to natural language processing and education. My current research focuses on using data mining techniques to analyze natural language in discussion forums of online courses. Our goal is to understand how these discussions impact students and their learning outcomes, and how to help instructors develop more effective courses.

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.
