I am a data scientist who studies applied machine learning and artificial intelligence. I am in the process of finishing my doctoral dissertation at the University of Pennsylvania. In my dissertation, I develop and test automated annotation technology using generative AI. Specifically, I investigate the potential of generative large language models (LLMs) to automate manual annotation procedures often used in natural language processing (NLP). To conduct my experiments, I developed an easy-to-use Python package to implement automated annotation.
I have presented this research at numerous computational social science conferences and on expert panels on AI. My research has also received press coverage. I am coordinating, along with Princeton’s Arthur Spirling, an inaugural Princeton-Penn artificial intelligence conference in early September 2024. The conference is titled, "Language Models in Social Science” (LMiSS).
In addition to my doctoral studies, I received a Master's in Data Science and Statistics from The Wharton School and have applied industry experience developing predictive algorithms and integrating cutting-edge AI technology into products. I’ve previously worked at Theta Equity Partners and DataCamp.Contact Download My Resume
