Hi! I am an undergraduate at Northwestern University studying computer science and math, and I identify with the natural language processing and computer audition communities. My current research work includes definition modeling for word compounds, generating natural language captions for audio, and some tinkering in music generation. I’ve recently been thinking a lot about developing automatic measures of model confidence and how they can be used to enable different training techniques and incorporate human input. I have been super fortunate to work with Professor Doug Downey, Professor Bryan Pardo, and Dr. Prem Seetharaman, who have been the kindest of mentors and completely formative to my intellectual interests.
