About Me

I’m a PhD student in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania, where I am advised by Duncan Watts and Chris Callison-Burch and am part of the CSSLab and PennNLP. My research interests are in computational social science and natural language processing.

Before coming to Penn, I received my MS in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, where I was a Fulbright Scholar and worked with Emilio Ferrara and Nanyun Peng at the Information Sciences Institute.

I received my BSc, also in Computer Science, from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, and spent a couple of years building natural language processing systems for Urdu at its Center for Language Engineering.
