About me đź‘‹

I’m a managing senior research engineer at Educational Testing Service AI Labs. Since 2011 I have worked at ETS as a part of many teams, including NLP architecture, content assessment/feedback, etc. I also am teaching/have recently taught courses on applied NLP engineering and lingustic annotation at Montclair State University. My research interests include natural language and speech processing and machine learning, especially in relation to applications to automated scoring technology. My engineering interests include Python, scikit-learn, transformers, MLOps (generally), aws-cdk, terraform, Docker, Conda, AWS (SageMaker, ECS, Lambda, S3), FastAPI, Java, Bash, Rust, etc.

I obtained a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics (with a certificate in Computational Linguistics) from Montclair State University in 2016 and a bachelor’s degree (double major in English and Linguistics) from University of Pennsylvania in 2008.

Aside from publishing in NLP/speech conferences (listed below), I also have served as a reviewer for NLP conferences such as ACL, NAACL, EMNLP, and COLING.
