Bio

I am a postdoc in INRIA Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée, France, in Fabien Gandon's WIMMICS research team, funded by a Marie Curie ERCIM Alain Bensoussan award.

My dissertation, “Identifying, Annotating, and Filtering Arguments and Opinions in Open Collaboration Systems”, addresses the problem of analyzing, integrating, and reconciling information in online discussions.

I worked in academic libraries and bookstores for 6 years before my Ph.D. I continue to collaborate with cultural heritage organizations, particularly on Library Linked Data. I also have degrees in library & information science (M.S. UIUC), mathematics (M.A. UT-Austin), and liberal arts (B.A., Great Books, St. John's College).
