I am a PhD student of the Language Technologies Institute under the School of Computer Science and work with Prof. Jamie Callan on Information Retrieval research. I am currently actively involved in federated search research, investigating the use of selective search to reduce computational costs of searching large web-scale indexes.
Formerly, I graduated from the University of Waterloo majoring in Software Engineering. I have interned at many companies during my undergraduate years, including Google, A9.com, and Sybase. I have also done research in databases and event detection. For more information, please visit my curriculum vitae.
