I'm a Data Scientist in the Academic Research Centers and Social Data Collaboratory at NORC at the University of Chicago (fka "National Opinion Research Center"). I worked as a Research Scientist 2016-18, also at NORC. I'm trained as a generative linguist, with specialization in formal semantics and psycholinguistics. These days I spend most of my time doing applied NLP, analyzing large social media text datasets and thinking about how to extract useful information from topical corpora more generally. Here is my resume (see full academic CV for publications, presentations, and other professional activities).
I did my PhD in linguistics at NYU (2009-14) with Chris Barker, and then a postdoc at the University of Chicago (2014-16) with Chris Kennedy and Ming Xiang. During grad school, I also worked with Liina Pylkkanen on the neural correlates of adjective-noun modification using MEG.
Published papers, active manuscripts, and materials from conference presentations are in the research section. The teaching section has course materials for some classes I've taught in recent years. The other stuff section is a lounge where miscellaneous ramblings and sketches of ideas hang out, in various stages of development. Mostly stuff that is quite far from growing into a proper research paper, anytime soon at least. Topics vary quite a bit. If you see something you've been considering thinking more about, drop me a line and maybe we can work on it together.
