I am an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, also affiliated with the Machine Learning Center (ML@GT) at Georgia Tech. I am broadly interested in Computational Social Science, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. My research goal is to better understand human communication and build intelligent systems to support human-human and human-computer interaction, especially in the domain of health and social media.
