Computational Work

Text-/Web-Scraping for Under-resourced Languages

I'm currently building a corpus for San Lucas Quiaviní Zapotec. I've been scraping Zapotec data from linguistics publications, websites, and Twitter using Python and R.

Phonological Modeling

I'm currently the TA for Gaja Jarosz's graduate-level Cognitive Modeling class. I teach weekly sessions on R and Python, and grade labs on computational techniques for psycholinguistics, like parsing, clustering, and neural nets.

As an RA for Gaja Jarosz, I worked on computational learners for phonological hidden structure.

I worked on improving the efficiency of the implementation of the expectation- and error-driven learners described in Jarosz 2015.

I also wrote a JavaFX GUI for the learners.

Programming Languages

I spent a summer as an intern for Dr. Nate Foster in the Computer Science department at Cornell University.

I presented results at POPL 2014.
