About

I'm a PhD student working in the RiTUAL Lab with Dr. Thamar Solorio. Originally from Puerto Rico, I obtained my bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the Univerisity of Puerto Rico, Bayamon Campus.

Research Interests

My research interests are problems in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning such as language assessment, automatic question answering, text classification, among others.

Ongoing Research

I'm currently working on two main research topics:

  • Language Assessment - Can we use natural language processing methods to help identify language impairment in bilingual children?
  • Code-Switched Text - How can we use existing mono-lingual resources and natural language processing methods to process and digest text that combines more than one language.
