I presented my ICASSP paper in Calgary, Canada this week!
I'm also thinking about applying for faculty positions in the Fall, so please let me know of any openings!
I completed my Master of Science degree in June 2015 and am currently pursuing my PhD with Dr. James Glass. My primary research interest is natural language processing (NLP), including both written and spoken language understanding. Previously, I have enjoyed applying machine learning techniques to user intent detection in spoken dialogue systems, semantic tagging, and predicting user purchase behavior from social media. I am currently working on deep learning for a nutrition dialogue system and am also interested in encoder-decoder models for conversational agents, caption generation, and translation.
