I have graduated and am currently working
for Google. I finished my Ph.D. in
the Computer Science Department of
the Courant Institute
at NYU, working
with Prof. Mehryar Mohri. Prior
to starting at NYU, I was at MIT for
nine years, first as an undergraduate, then as a master's student, and
then as a research staff member at
the Computer Science and Artificial
Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).

I am currently at Google New York. In September 2009, I completed my
Ph.D. at the Computer Science Department of the Courant Institute at
NYU. My primary interests are in machine learning, speech and music
recognition, automata theory, and natural language processing. My
dissertation research, which combined elements of each of these, was
focused on enabling search of large collections of audio data, such as
speech and music. I received the M.Eng. and B.S. degrees in Computer
Science from MIT in 2001 and 2000, respectively.
