B.S. in Computer Science and Linguistics
Georgetown University, Class of 2024
Who am I?
I am a freshman in Georgetown College at Georgetown University, majoring in Computer Science and Linguistics. My interest lies in the intersection of those fields: computational linguistics. I'm a member of NERT, Dr. Nathan Schneider's research group at Georgetown that works on meaning representation, parsing, corpus annotation, and many other research problems in the field.
Some of my recent work approaches the problem of predicting schwa-deletion in Hindi using machine learning, the evaluation of AMR (Abstract Meaning Representation) parsers for English, and the application of SNACS (Semantic Network of Adposition and Case Supersenses) to Hindi in the form of an annotated corpus and guidelines.
I enjoy coding cool things. Interactive data visualization is one of the things that first drew me to computer science.
What's that image?
That's a small selection from an image on Wikimedia Commons of an unknown edict of the Mauryan emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE. It is written in a regional Prakrit language in the Brahmi script. Prakrit was an intermediary group of languages between Sanskrit and modern Indo-Aryan languages.
