I am a 3rd year PhD student in Computational Linguistics at Indiana University. I am interested in computational linguistics for under resourced languages, morphologically rich languages, and African languages.

I am also interested in NLP tasks that relate to the sentiments and emotions of the author. This includes tasks like stance detection, sentiment analysis, irony/sarcasm detection etc.
