Greetings👋 I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Information Science at Indiana University Bloomington. I'm now actively seeking a tenure-track assistant professorship for a start date in Fall 2025.

My broad scholarly inquiry concerns the dynamics within the humanities and social sciences. My ongoing projects can be categorized as natural language processing, computational humanities, and quantitative science studies. I'm also passionate about developing large language models for the public and community good, including defending against authorship identification attacks for whistleblowers and making scientific knowledge more accessible for laypersons and young readers.
