I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington Information School. I am also Adjunct in Computer Science & Engineering and Biomedical Informatics & Medical Education, as well as a Visiting Scientist at the Allen Institute for AI (AI2). My research asks whether AI and natural language processing techniques can make sense of scientific output and help people make better health-related decisions.
I was previously a Postdoctoral Young Investigator at the Allen Institute for AI in the Semantic Scholar research group. I completed my PhD in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education (BIME) at the University of Washington.
