Hi! I am a Lecturer III in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Michigan (U-M). I am off on maternity leave in Fall 2022, but I will be teaching EECS 492 (Introduction to Artificial Intelligence) in Winter 2023 (interested students, you can see my Winter 2022 syllabus here).

Interested in computer science?

Heard about programming, but not really sure how it works? Want to see how computers connect to real-world applications in many disciplines? If so, we have the class for you! EECS 110: Discover CS is a two-credit class offered in Fall 2022. In this class, you will explore the many possibilities of computer science while learning the basics of programming. This class is open to any student with no formal programming experience, and is particularly designed for women and students from underrepresented minorities.

About Me: Professional

I finished my Ph.D. in 2020 at U-M, where I was a part of the LIT research group, supervised by Dr. Rada Mihalcea. Before then, I earned my Master's degree from U-M in 2017 and my bachelor's degree in computer science at Grove City College in 2015.

My research is in the area of natural language processing, where I am interested in word embeddings, computational social science, machine learning techniques, and multimodal problems with vision and language. If you're interested in my research or publications, please see my research page.

About Me: Personal

Outside of work, I love spending time with family and friends, crocheting blankets, taking long walks outside, and reading novels. I am an active member in my church, Christ Church Ann Arbor - everyone is welcome to come join us! (We also have a student group on campus, Reformed University Fellowship.)
