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 interested in Computational Social Science, and Natural Language Processing. My research goal is to better understand human communication in social context and build socially-aware intelligent systems to support human-human and human-computer interaction at scale.

Prospective students: We are always looking for PhD students to join our lab (apply here). I'm also happy to work with masters or undergraduate students at Georgia Tech. If you are interested, please send me an email.
