I’m a developer advocate for Rasa, where I’m helping devlopers build and deploy conversational AI applications using our open source framework. 🤖💬

I have a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Washington. My research was on computational sociolinguistics, or how our social identity affects the way we use language in computational contexts. Previously I was a data scientist at Kaggle and I’m still a Grandmaster.

Here are some of the things I’m up to these days:

  • I stream livecoding most Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:00 AM Pacific. You can join me on Twitch.
  • I’m one of the organizers of R-Ladies Seattle.
  • I moderate the LingStatsChat Slack channel, a place for friendly discussion & help on linguistic and statistical topics. If you’re interested, you can join at this link.
