I am a Research Scientist at IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California. I am interested in natural language understanding, structured and unstructured text data, model explainability and human-in- the-loop techniques.

I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science, awarded in 2014 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). My research was in the area of Data Mining, supervised by Professor Jiawei Han.  I previously received an M.S. in Computer Science from UIUC in 2011, and a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Chicago in 2007.
