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 will work at the intersection of RL, NLP, and dialogue systems. You can see here my papers, repo projects, and the research I've been working on. Hope you enjoy ;-)

Current Research

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.

From a few projects I've worked on

FST SPECIALIZER

2017

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

2016

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

2016

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.

PROSODY DETECTION

2015

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.

The figure shows the percentage of Types (%) predicted stratified by frequency in known SotA language models
