I am a Senior ML Research Scientist at Systems & Technology Research (STR). Prior to this role, I was a Lead Data Scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton. I’m also a PhD candidate in the School of Economics at University College Dublin, where my research focuses on applied machine learning methods for macroeconomics. Additionally, I am an MS candidate in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin. I have primary interests in the applications of natural language processing, machine learning, and deep learning for social good and public policy.
I am a former Data Science for Social Good Fellow at the University of Chicago. I was also a Project Manager for DSSG Solve, where I led a team to research and build a tool to analyze social media discourse around natural disasters in collaboration with the International Water Management Institute (IWMI).
