Hi there!

I'm a PhD student in the Linguistics Department at Stanford University and member of the Natural Language Processing Group and the Interactional Sociophonetics Lab. My primary advisor is Dan Jurafsky.


My research interests include natural language processing, social meaning, sociophonetics and interactional variation, Chinese and Japanese linguistics, gesture and embodiment, and applications of linguistic research to social good.


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you around!
