Hi! I’m a Data Science Ph.D. candidate at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a member of the DAISY Lab, advised by Elke Rundensteiner and Xiangnan Kong.

In my research, I study data mining and machine learning for time series and text. With robust methods in hand, I aim to advance healthcare and environmental data science.

My work has appeared at several top venues (KDD, AAAI, ACL, CIKM) and I spent a year collaborating with the UMass Medical School using machine learning to help doctors write clinical trials faster.

Please feel free to contact me with questions about my research or our program at WPI. I am always happy to chat!

Research Interests



Outside of research, I enjoy bouldering, biking, books (fantasy, science fiction, science fact), birdwatching, and playing guitar. I also spent a summer living at BioSphere 2 in rural Arizona.
