I am a PhD student in linguistics at UMass Amherst and a member of UMass NLP Lab. I'm advised by Prof. Rajesh Bhatt and Prof. Mohit Iyyer. I completed my master's degree in linguistics at University of Konstanz, advised by Prof. Maribel Romero. My research interests lie in semantics, syntax-semantics interface, and natural language processing.
Current projects: improving human and automatic evaluation of paragraph paraphrasing, long-form question answering, and long-form machine translation.
