My academic research focuses on techniques for effectively using low-resource languages in Natural Language Processing, with particular interests in parsing morphologically-rich languages and unsupervised or semi-supervised parsing methods. My dissertation research focuses on the properties of imperfect data like quickly collected corpora or partial annotations, and the consequences for low-data scenarios.

I was previously part of the UW-Madison Laryngeal Physiology Laboratory, where I focused on the quantification and analysis of dysphagia.
