Experiences


Summer Internship at Amazon


I worked as an Applied Scientist Intern at Amazon for Summer 2019 and Fall 2020. For the two internships, I worked on projects related to natural language processing and learning to rank.

Computational Social Science Summer School(CSS'18)


I went to the Computational Social Science Summer School in LA this summer. It was a full week summer school with awesome lectures and one project. The project I participated in was Cyberbullying on Instagram, collaborated with Qinyu E, Reham Al Tamine, Sijia Yang, with advisor Prof Homa Hosseinmardi. Our project luckily won the Best Project Award Prize for the Summer School! Here are the slides for our project!

Complex System Summer School (CSSS'18)


I participated the Complex System Summer School at Santa Fe Institute in summer 2018. It is a one-month long program with extensive lectures, projects, and a lot of fun! I participated in two projects:

  • Understanding music using higher order networks (see more details in Projects)
  • Analyzing Singapore public transportation data and economic sector clustering

Addtionally, several of us went to a ranch in Colorado to see yaks and get yak milk to make yak butter tea from scratch!
