I am a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Massachusetts Amherst working with Prof. Mohit Iyyer and a member of the UMass NLP Lab. My main research interest lies at the intersection of natural language processing, sociolinguistics and second language acquisition. I am also interested in crowdsoursing, evaluation of open-ended text generation and factors which may affect annotator’s decisions.

I hold a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Language and Information Sciences at the University of Tokyo.
