I am a third year undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University, and I am currently in my 3rd year of pursuing a BS in Computer Science, with a second major in Cognitive Science. My interest is Natural Language Processing. I am currently doing research with Dr. Callison-Burch and Dr. Van Durme in using Machine Learning to find the size of physical objects through context.
