Developer

I love to code in Python and Javascript, and I've got plenty of experience with NLP. I've also got some training in web dev and data analysis.

Check out my projects!

Linguist

Human language is one of the most fascinating and complex phenomena on the planet. My primary research interest is second-language vocabulary learning, especially in Spanish, my second language.

Here are some of the conferences I've presented at!

Instructor

I teach Computational Linguistics and Spanish at Iowa State University. I like to push my students to think critically and ask the hard questions.

I've also developed my own LMS for my students to get automatic feedback on their assignments.

Entrepreneur

As part of the Linguatorium Project Association, I market two research-grounded language-learning tools to ESL teachers around the world. Our goal is to help students learn while saving teachers' time using tools that are proven to work.

Let me know if you'd like to hear more!
