Hi! I am an Assistant Professor of machine learning in the Department of decision sciences at HEC Montréal and a member of Mila — Québec Artificial Intelligence Institute. My research intersects AI and cognitive science. I am interested in understanding how both humans and machines learn to understand language and reason about complex problems. Previously, I was a postdoc at Mila and McGill University with Timothy J. O'Donnell and Siva Reddy. My Ph.D. was in computational/cognitive linguistics from Stanford University, where I worked with Dan Jurafsky and Mike C. Frank. I'm an interdisciplinarian at heart!

I'll be looking for PhD and Masters students for 2025, so give me a shout! My pronouns are she/they.
