Ph.D. Candidate in NLP

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center specializing in Natural Language Processing. My main research interest is Natural Language Processing for healthcare applications. I am also interested in machine learning and multimodal design. I am currently working on my dissertation project, which is a fully automated end-to-end multimodal depression detection system.

I also like to spend time blogging, writing tutorials, and Olympic lifting.
