Prior to attending JHU, I received my masters from the Language Technologies Institute in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My research focused on the DSCoVAR project with Maxine Eskenazi, Kevyn Collins-Thompson and others. This included building a measure that ranks the difficulty of sentences for first-language readers using crowdsourced judgments (see publications below for more details).
Before attending CMU, I graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in both Computer Science and Linguistics. Additionally, I worked as a software developer for several years (as a student intern and later full-time).
