PhD Candidate in Computer Science & Engineering, University of Michigan

Research

I work in the LIT lab at UMich. My advisor is Rada Mihalcea.

My research focuses on the development and application of Natural Language Processing techniques toward Computational Social Science Problems. This often involves the use of Machine Learning and Crowd Computing methods.

Specifically, I'm looking at ways to automatically infer personal values from text and explore how values relate to a person's culture and behaviors.
