I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Previously I worked in the Cognition, Robotics, and Learning (CoRaL) lab under the direction of Tim Oates. My current area of research is the lexical semantics of adjectives. Other interests include the use of NLP with endangered languages and reproducible computational science.
