Jordan recently finished up his undergraduate studies at Brandeis and has moved on to the 5th year BA/MS program in CL. He hopes to utilize the skills gained throughout the year to secure an engineering or research position in the NLP industry.
Elaine studied Linguistics and Chinese Language & Literature at the University of Washington. She was fortunate enough to take two intro CL courses during the last year of my senior year and became interested in the field of CL/NLP.
Gaby completed her BA in Linguistics and Asian Language and Cultures at UCLA. Gaby came to Brandeis to study computational linguistics in order to improve her computational skills and to explore areas of interest in natural language processing.
Brynna graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle with a BA in linguistics and a minor in informatics, and she is looking forward to continuing her education at Brandeis. She is particularly interested in phonetics but is curious about anything having to do with language and language technology.
Dohyun studied physics at Seoul National University had research experiences. Preparing for a career transition, she is fascinated by the field of computational linguistics. At Brandeis, She hopes to advance her computational skills and linguistic foundation which would complement her background. She loves to be outdoors, running and hiking in her free time.
Wesley earned his BA in Linguistics and Psychology at Boston College. Following this, he spent several years working as the lab coordinator of the BC Language Learning Lab, where he had the opportunity to conduct psycholinguistic research using computational methods. At Brandeis, he hopes to enhance his programming skills in preparation for a career in industry.
Andrew most recently worked as a data insights analyst in the tech industry, and before that graduated from New York University with a BA in Film & Television, where he became fascinated with language through the lens of international cinema.
