About Me

I am a 4th year PhD candidate in the Ingenuity Labs Research Institute at Queen’s University.

I also work with Vector Institute and the Conflict Analytics Lab (CAL) on various projects. My research interests are: Interpretability, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning primarily for high-stakes decision making.

I have interned at Thomson Reuters Labs in Toronto, and Rakuten Americas (Rakuten Institute of Technology). I have also completed a Mitacs Accelerate internship with the Innovation Boost Zone, Toronto. Earlier, I was a Google Summer of Code contributor.
