I am a fourth year PhD student in EECS, advised by Dr. Pete Szolovits in the Clinical Decision Making Group (MEDG). My interests lie in the intersection of Natural Language Processing and healthcare. My masters thesis focused on showing which information beyond modeling architecture causes variations in performance for Relation Extraction system. My experiments showed that we need to streamline comparison of works in NLP to assess true source of performance gains in our models. My current interests lie in joint representation learning from images and text grounded in clinical tasks.

I completed my bachelors in Computer Science at Florida International University, and worked on projects related to Knowledge Representation for Virtual Health Assistants, as well as one related to using supervised learning identifying characters in folktales.

In my free time, I enjoy practicing and teaching yoga, photography, drawing and cooking (which is my new hobby!).
