Postdoc @ Piech Lab @ Stanford · Fellow @ BAEF · Board Member @ ACL SIGEDU


Hi there!

I’m a postdoctoral researcher interested in the application of natural language processing and machine learning in educational technologies for language learners.

My work focuses on developing automated methods (statistical and deep learning) and machine-readable resources for the identification and prediction of complexity and difficulty in natural language.

Several resources that I developed are available open access under a Creative Commons license, such as the CEFR-ASAG dataset and the NT2Lex resource.
