About Me

I defended my dissertation in March 2020 and graduated in May 2020 with a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Kentucky. My advisor is Dr. Ramakanth Kavuluru. My research background is in machine learning, natural language processing, and information extraction with a special focus on end-to-end relation extraction. My dissertation work led to an NLM R01 project that has been awarded over $1.3 million in total funding.
