Hi! I’m a second year PhD student at UMass Amherst advised by Prof. Przemyslaw Grabowicz. I am primarily interested in machine learning and computational social science. My research applies statistical and computational techniques to investigate sociotechnical systems across various domains, including the science of science and social media.

I have done my Master’s in Computer Science at UMass Amherst advised by Prof. Andrew McCallum where my research focused on the discourse structure between reviewers and authors on Previously, I was also a Data Science for the Common Good Fellow and a ML research intern at Palo Alto Networks.

In my free time, I like to play the guitar and try my hand at new recipes.
