I'm a postdoc at CU Boulder
Hi. Welcome! I Recently joined CU Boulder as postdoc working on developing classroom assistants in educational setting. I work at the intersection of RL, NLP, and dialogue systems. I care for the ethical and human-centered systems as well. You can see here my papers, repo projects, and the research I've been working on. Hope you enjoy ;-)
My main Focus is on developing bots to facilitate discussion and learning in a classroom setting. Aside from that I continue to work on questions around bias, and aspects of personalization following my thesis.
Recent Research Papers

Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP)
From a few projects I've worked on
A Python library to create Special Fsts as described in OpenFst source code. This specializer library enables sigma, rho, and phi operations over fsts over using the command line operations of OpenFst. To have a small footprint, this functionality was implemented in Cython and included generating C++ files.
DOCKER IMAGES FOR FST TOOLS
Openfst and Pywrapfst library images that provide an openfst with pywrapfst environment on ubuntu 14.4. The most recent images are the pynini_1.4.1 and the fst_1.6.1 and their installation details as well as content is available.
OBFUSCATION DETECTION WITH DEEP LEARNING
The basic code for obfuscation detection provides a trained classifier to analyze and detect the encoding language used to obfuscate parts of code in order to hide there sensitive information or potnetially harmful behavior.
Code for different sequence classifiers as described in the paper “Textual Prediction of Prosodic Prominence in Spontaneous Speech with Sequence Classifiers”. There are viterbi, greedy first and second order and, local search first second and third order.
