I am an applied scientist at Reality Defender. My research interests lie in the intersection of speech processing and natural language processing, in particular computational models of prosody in spoken language understanding. I am especially interested in speech/NLP applications for health, education, and social impact.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Intelligent Human Perception (IHP) lab at the University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies (USC-ICT), working with Prof. Mohammad Soleymani and Prof. Stefan Scherer.
I graduated from the Transformation, Interpretation, and Analysis of Language (TIAL) lab at the University of Washington, Electrical & Computer Engineering Department, where I was advised by Prof. Mari Ostendorf.
