I'm a research associate at the University of Glasgow and a member of the Terrier Team. I did my PhD at Georgetown University under Nazli Goharian and Ophir Frieder, where I was a member of the IR Lab and an ARCS Endowed Scholar. My research focuses on applying machine learning to problems in IR and NLP. I've done research internships at AI2, CNR, Adobe, and MPI-INF. Before graduate school, I worked as a software developer at IIT/SourceTech.
I am currently looking for PhD students to start in October 2022. Please contact me if interested.
