Hi, I'm Michael!

I am a second year CS PhD student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the NLP Lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Summer 2021 I am completing my third Applied Scientist Internship with Amazon Alexa, working on web based question answering.

I am excited about language technologies and the benefits they may bring to society. My current research interests include objective measures of bias in textual natural language datasets, robustly modeling spoken language with semantics, and quantifying transparency in communications around AI systems.

Previously, I did my MS in Computer Engineering at Arizona State University, studying speech-based measures of neurological disease.

Feel free to reach out if you'd like to chat about natural language processing, speech, or anything, really.
