I am a first year PhD student in Language and Information Technologies at Carnegie Mellon University. My advisors are Noah Smith and Chris Dyer. My research interests are primarily in structured prediction. In particular, I find the problem of efficient search in an exponential space of complex structures very interesting.

My current projects involve work in diversity in parsing.

In 2013, I graduated from a Masters program at Columbia University. Here, I worked on detection of influence and power in online social media.
